In 2015, 59 hikers participated in the 3rd annual XTREME HIKE event, hiking 30.1 miles in just 1 day to raise awareness and vital funds towards the CF Foundation’s mission to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. During the 3 months leading up to XTREME HIKE Day, these hikers trained as a team under the guidance of experienced hike coaches, while raising over $207,900! Since its inception in 2013, Xtreme Hike has raised over $479,000 for the CF Foundation.
This life-changing experience is offered once again in the Fall of 2016!
Unleash your inner top gun and join us for our annual bicycle event (10/1/2016), as we ride through some of the most breathtaking scenery in St. Charles County, MO. Our riders LOVE our unique Start/Finish Location at St. Charles County Smartt Field Airport, home to the Commemorative Air Force and historical artifacts, aircraft and ground support vehicles.
The CF Cycle for Life morning begins with a nutritious breakfast to fuel each rider for the fully-supported ride option of their choice: 25, 50 or Century. Riders rave about our fully-stocked and themed rest stops that reinvigorate them every 10-12 miles. You feel completely safe during the ride due to the strong presence of bicycle mechanics, ride marshals, motorcycle marshals & SAG support. When you fly past the finish line and accept your finisher medal to the sounds of cheering volunteers and festive music, you will know that your accomplishment was so much bigger than completing an endurance event: You will have helped fly us closer to the cure; thus, bettering the lives of those affected by cystic fibrosis. Celebrate your successful mission with fellow riders at the victory party with a delicious meal and beer. We hope you join us for CF Cycle for Life, which transforms riders into pilots as they steer our quest to cure cystic fibrosis.
