Each year, FiltersFast.com’s Founder and President, Ray, along with the rest of the FiltersFast.com team, challenge themselves mentally and physically as they hike 30.1 miles of the Appalachian Trail.Â This year, Ray will be joined by John Osterhoudt, Denis Coombes, Paul Kauer, and Ray Hill.
Are you wondering why they do this? April is Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month and each year an Xtreme Hike for the Cure is held by the Cystic FibrosisÂ Foundation in order to help raise money to find a cure. This year’s hike will be held on April 27th.
Ray has participated in the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Xtreme Hike for the Cure every year since 2013. Last year, weÂ were able to raise $27,899 to help fight CF! With the support of amazing vendors, our customers and partners, we hope to raise $30,000+ for this yearâ€™s hike.
This year, FiltersFast.com will match customer donations up to $10,000. Would you like to help us reach our goal? Make a donationÂ here.
â€śPersonally, the hike always proves challenging and training is a critical part of the hike…it is a huge time commitment, but nothing compared to the time those with CF have to spend on treatments every day.Â I am inspired by other hikers who have CF or have family members that have CF and am excited to help them all move closer to the day that CF stands for Cure Found!Â Thank you again for your generous support.” -Ray
