and share personal experiences.

Maryland Chapter - Hike For Discovery
Hiking to Save Lives

Hike For Discovery was an adventure fundraising program for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. In exchange for raising money to promote research to find a cure for Leukemia, Lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and Myeloma, the society provided training and resources all leading up to an adventure weekend in one of America's beautiful national parks.

The Maryland Chapter had the honor of participating in the 2007 and 2008 seasons. In 2007 they traveled to the Grand Canyon and in 2008 the destination was Yosemite National Park. Both Years the team raised a lot of money to fund research and met a lot of interesting and special people along the way.

In 2009 the Hike For Discovery program was merged into the highly successful and well known Team Training program of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Hike is now one of that programs sports but besides the name change, new colors, and bigger family of alumni nothing has changed.

The beloved boot logo is no longer in use but it will forever be in the hearts of Hike For Discovery participants.
