The Ultimate Hike is a one-day event in which ordinary folks complete the extraordinary feat of hiking more than 26 miles in one day. The local opportunity will be held this spring on May 19th when participants will hike 26.5 miles of the Foothills Trail in an effort to raise money to help find a cure for pediatric cancer, the number one cause of death by disease in children.
Each hiker is required to attend one of the information sessions held around the Asheville area. The REI Asheville store will hold an information session on February 24th, from 6:30 to 7:30, for anyone interested.
This event benefits CureSearch for Children's Cancer. For more information on the hike, please click here.
