Raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and participate in the climb of a lifetime by joining this year's "Xtreme Hike." The hike takes place Sept. 5 to 7 in Lake Placid, but it's time to start making plans and getting in shape for it now.

Participants agree to fundraise a minimum of $2,500 before September. They receive an online fundraising page, and Karen Ferguson, the executive director of the foundation, provides coaching to help people meet their goal. Training hikes are also included, along with a three-month training program.

"As part of the event, the CF Foundation will pay for your hotel (two nights) and food for the weekend. We take care of all expenses for the hike. Participants need only get themselves to the hotel and, of course, back home," Ferguson says.
