Welcome to Ultimate Hike
CureSearch's Ultimate Hike program gives you the opportunity to tell children's cancer to "take a hike" by trekking 20-30 miles in one day on some of the country's most beautiful trails. To date, Ultimate Hikers have raised over $5 Million in support of CureSearch's mission to end childhood cancer.
Our training program ensures participants of all fitness levels will be prepared for their Ultimate Hike adventure. Train with a group in one of our official training cities, or train from anywhere with online support from your coach and teammates. An Ultimate Hike event weekend includes lodging, food, transportation, trail support ... and a life-changing experience. CureSearch staff provide fundraising tools and guidance to ensure you reach your goals and help change the odds for children with cancer.
"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."
