For Marie Clem, hiking has been a part of a personal journey to better physical and mental health. The Ashburn, Virginia native wanted to use her love of hiking to create a one-of-a-kind fundraising event, and Hike For a Cure was born. As for the beneficiary of the event, Marie chose bone cancer research initiatives at UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.

On Saturday, April 26, Clem and her fellow hikers will gather at 6:30 a.m. at Prince William Forest Park in Dumfries, Virginia and hike 15 miles through the national park.  The hike is open to anyone who wants to walk any part of it. If the hike isn't possible for you, Marie hopes you will take part by walking the neighborhood, school track or mall on the day of event.
