Telling children's cancer to take a hike

CureSearch Ultimate Hike is the only hiking endurance program focused on childhood cancer. To date, Ultimate Hikers have raised over $10 million in support of CureSearch's mission to end childhood cancer.

The entire Ultimate Hike weekend is a life-changing, lifesaving event that combines the joy of hiking with the mission of raising funds for pediatric cancer research. You'll conquer rugged terrains and take in breathtaking views as you hike up to 30 miles in one day, all in support of funding cures. Ultimate Hike brings together passionate supporters and survivors, united in our dedication to make a difference in the lives of children and their families affected by cancer.

The Ultimate Hike WEEKEND

  • The Adventure Kicks Off

    At hotel check-in, all hikers grab a swag bag of items designed to enhance your hiking experience. We spend the evening together for a welcome reception and dinner, kickstarting the exciting weekend ahead.

  • Ultimate Hike Day

    We'll rise for an early morning breakfast and ride to the trail together. Once we reach the trailhead, coaches will help kick off the journey ahead. Coaches and aid station volunteers are with you every step of the way to offer encouragement, share trail updates, and address any concerns or questions hikers might have.

  • Wrapping Up a Lifesaving Weekend

    On Sunday morning, we'll celebrate together at an awards breakfast recognizing the tremendous dedication and fundraising efforts of each individual and team. The awards ceremony serves as a reminder that Ultimate Hike is not just a physical challenge but an impactful event that brings us together, inspires change, and provides hope for a brighter future for kids with cancer.
