Sun September 22, 2019 Yosemite Valley, CA US 95389 Directions
Join families affected by histiocytosis as we take on two mighty challenges:
  • Raising $100,000 to help fund a cure for histiocytosis, and
  • Hiking from Yosemite Valley to “Histio Lookout” on the Clouds Rest trail.

Both are hard. Fighting histiocytosis is so much harder.

Step by Step we will do it together!

About the Hike

Please join us in Yosemite for an inspiring and challenging hike to a powerful place we call Histio Lookout on the trail to Half Dome and Clouds Rest. You’ll be part of a very special group of family and friends working together to raise funds to find a cure for a histiocytosis.

Saturday night we have a group dinner followed by a fun kickoff presentation in the amphitheater. Sunday morning we leave before dawn. With each step on the 18 mile hike we are reminded of the exhausting, seemingly never-ending journey faced by those fighting histiocytosis. The hike is hard – no doubt. Fighting histiocytosis is significantly harder.​

Sunday night over dinner we celebrate success, and then say our goodbyes at breakfast on Monday. Back at home, school or work you will have many stories to share with your sponsors – not just about the hike itself, but about the “Histio Hero’s” and their families that you met.​

This is our 19th annual hike. In partnership with the Histio Cure Foundation our goal is to have a cure in place by 2021. The doctors we are working with have made tremendous progress since our first hike in 2001. Join us and be part of curing this rare and difficult disease!

About Us

When our son Anton (center) was diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH) three months after his birth our world was in turned upside down. In those days the survival rate for infants with the disease was less than 50%.​ It was a very hard time for us.

We were incredibly grateful that he survived this battle, and came away determined to help those that were to follow us down this difficult path. With the support of our family and friends we created Hike For A Cure in 2001 to raise money to fund the research that would lead to a cure for histiocytosis. Together we’ve raised over $1.9M since that first hike.

Our goal is clear: to have a cure in place by 2021. 
Please support Hike For A Cure - as a hiker or a sponsor. All donations go to the Histio Cure Foundation, which sends 100% of those funds directly to researchers focused on histicytosis. Together we will fund a cure!
