The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike program takes hikers through some of the most scenic trails in the nation to raise funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis. Xtreme Hike is about reaching new heights physically and philanthropically. It is a journey of passion, determination, and personal triumph, as much as it is an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people with cystic fibrosis.

The Metro DC Chapter’s Xtreme Hike will span a 22 mile route throughout the wilderness of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. All hikers will enjoy accommodations for three days and two nights at Wintergreen Resort. This includes an energizing, pre-hike pasta party, pre-hike breakfast, post party dinner and a “Victory” breakfast on Sunday. As participants prepare for the physical challenge, hikers are encouraged to raise $2,500 through their personal and social media campaigns. The Xtreme Hike is limited to 75 people.
