Trek for 43

Trek for 43

Join supporters around the nation this National Take a Hike Day and raise critical funds for pediatric cancer research. 

Trek for 43, CureSearch’s newest program, empowers people to come together to tell children’s cancer to “take a hike” during National Take a Hike Day weekend, November 15-17. 

“This program is great because it can fit in every workplace, community or school,” said CureSearch National Manager Brecka Putnam. “Trekstarters have the ability to select the length and location of their hike, from challenging treks up the side of a mountain to mall walks and everything in between” 

Join supporters from across the country participating in a volunteer-led Trek for 43 event or create your own to show your support for the 43 kids diagnosed with cancer each day and raise funds for innovative children’s cancer research

Creative Trek for 43 plans are emerging across the nation. In Atlanta, Georgia, medical staff at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta are organizing multiple hikes in order to accommodate as many people as possible by providing options for distance and difficulty. In St. Louis, Missouri, CureSearch Ultimate Hike alumnae Susan Pregon is organizing a company-wide event and the workplace is paying registration costs for the first 20 employees to join.
