Join Us for an Informational Meeting
The Wisconsin Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will be hosting the 1st Annual XTREME HIKE (XH) on Saturday, October 5, 2013. This is a one-day, 30 mile, fully supported hike on the Ice Age National Trail. XH is an event that challenges people to test their fitness ability and endurance during a one-day hike. The hike is fully supported and is inspiring people across the U.S. to hike until a cure is found.
Wisconsin is the perfect place to host this event. The natural beauty of our State is unparalleled, especially in fall. We will be hosting this event each year on a different section of the Ice Age National Trail until a cure is found. During the hike, we will be showcasing Wisconsin food & beverage products on and off the trail, making this a true celebration of all that is Wisconsin!

What is cystic fibrosis? Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive systems of about 30,000 children and young adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide).
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation When the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation began in 1955, few children with CF lived to reach elementary school. Today, due to the work of the CF Foundation, patients are living into their 20’s, 30’s and beyond.
Why Hike? Despite considerable progress, we continue to lose too many precious lives each and every day.
Please RSVP by July 29 by contacting Lisa at CFF: 262-798-2060 l 608-298-9902 l firstname.lastname@example.org

Because of risks to people with cystic fibrosis (CF), individuals who have ever had a confirmed positive sputum culture for Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) complex shall not attend any Foundation events. These requirements are because CF germs can be passed between individuals who have CF. B. cepacia in a person with CF can cause serious respiratory illness and, in some patients, may lead to death. CF germs are not a risk for otherwise healthy individuals. At any outdoor event, people with CF should keep at least 6 feet away from others with CF. Despite this policy, individuals with CF might choose to attend events without informing the CF Foundation or without the Foundation’s knowledge. If so, they do so at their own risk. The Foundation accepts no responsibility for any risk to health involved in attendance, or in any social contact between persons with CF. For more information, please visit www.cff.org.
