Xtreme Hike

Event Overview

 Xtreme Hike
HOW FAR WOULD YOU GO FOR A CURE?

Mt. Greylock

6/23/2012

Berkshire

Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights. Join an amazing 3-Day Experience that includes one day of hiking on a 22.2 mile-hike through the scenic and natural beauty of Mt. Greylock. The trail takes hikers through the summit, breathtaking vistas and waterfalls. Xtreme Hike is a journey of passion, determination and personal challenge as you make a difference in the lives of people with cystic fibrosis.

WHY HIKE
By participating in Xtreme Hike, you'll support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's mission to help develop new treatments and find the cure.  When the CF Foundation began in 1955, few children lived to reach elementary school.  Today thanks to dedicated supporters and CF science, patients are living into their 20's. 30's and beyond.  Your help is needed to maintain this momentum. Keep Climbing!

Important note on attendance for people with CF and their families:
The health and well-being of people with cystic fibrosis is our top priority. Medical evidence shows that certain bacteria can be passed between individuals who have CF and can lead to worse symptoms and speed decline in lung function. To limit the serious risk of cross-infection between people with CF, only one person with CF may be invited to attend the indoor portion of each CF Foundation-sponsored event.  For the outdoor portion of the event, people with CF should maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from each other.

Please note: People with CF and their families should be aware that individuals with CF might choose to attend Foundation events or meetings without notifying event organizers. We strongly discourage this; however, we cannot guarantee that only one person with CF will be present at any indoor Foundation event. For more information, please call your local chapter.
