Welcome to Ultimate Hike

Ultimate Hike is a life-changing, lifesaving adventure! Accomplish a once-in-a-lifetime goal, make new friends, and help CureSearch for Children's Cancer fund lifesaving research. With your help, together we can change the odds for children with cancer. Join us for a hike in your area, or increase the adventure by training on your own for a hike that's far away. By hiking with us, you are changing the odds for the more than 40,000 children, adolescents, and young adults who are currently undergoing treatment for pediatric cancer, as well as in the 43 children who are newly-diagnosed each day.

"Taking part twice as a Hiker confirms for me that this event makes me feel like I'm committed to something bigger than myself, bigger than cancer! Coming together with other Hikers for a common cause...Beat childhood cancer with our boots!"
-Dolly Sods Wilderness Ultimate Hiker

"Not often can you look around a room full of people and realize that although they all came together for different reasons, each one of them is someone you would genuinely want to spend time with. That's one of the things that makes Ultimate Hike unique."
-Frank, Ultimate Hike Coach
