Fun Training Hikes

Xtreme Hike DC Metro is a group of people that love getting together to hiking some of the most scenic trails in the DC Metro throughout the year.

This group is also used for people that train for an event called Xtremehike- Supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation- which is a one-day charity hike that ranges between 21 to 31 miles on some of the most scenic trails in the DC Metro area.

Why We Hike?

There is no cure for Cystic Fibrosis and at present, the average life expectancy of someone living with CF is around 37 to 38 years of age.

While this is a sobering statistic, many CF patients are far exceeding that average, thanks to advancements in physical therapy protocols and medications targeted at fostering lung health. The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a nonprofit, donor-supported organization, is to improve the quality of life for those living with this disease and fund research to find a cure. The Foundation receives no federal funding to accomplish its aggressive goals

About the Xtreme Hike

The event consists of either a 10 to 12 mile or 25-30 mile hike, in a single day, through some of the most beautiful mountains and terrain along the East Coast.

 

The ultimate goal of Xtreme Hike is to fund research to help those with Cystic Fibrosis live longer lives and to one day, find a cure. But there’s so much more to this event. Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights — both physically and philanthropically. It’s a journey of passion, determination, and personal triumph, as much as it is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those living with CF

We are there for you!

Don’t sweat it! We have a program to help you get in shape and optimize fundraising.
