Christi’s Great Outdoor Race
Christi’s Great Outdoor Race is a fundraiser for women battling cancer in the Mt. Rainier Foothills/Plateau area. Teams of racers traverse mountains, rivers, and forests in order to push themselves beyond their limits. Teams work together as a whole to overcome a wide array of challenges that they encounter, ranging from: navigational challenges, physical challenges, and emotional challenges. Fully realizing that our contributions won’t stop cancer, it is our desire to enter into the battle alongside these women, who persevere in the face of uncertain circumstances.
The Race is held each year in honor of Christi Hill. Christi’s battle cry was “Never Give Up”. In her darkest moment, it was the sacrifice of her sons and friends competing in the first ever Great Outdoor Race that gave her the resolve to reaffirm her battle cry and keep fighting. After she passed away from kidney cancer, her family decided to honor her battle cry and continue the Race. Christi embodied the spirit of love and adventure, and this event reflects her passion to kick cancer in the butt. Our goal each year is to help one more woman plant her flag in the sand, take up the battle cry, and “Never Give Up!”

2017 Beneficiary: Susan Burke
This year, Christi’s Great Outdoor Race has the privilege of sponsoring Susan Burke who recently moved to the area to seek quality care for stage 3 breast cancer from Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
Susan Burke had hit a low point in life long before she was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. She describes her 4 years in prison simply as, “the pit.” Although she isn’t fond of the cancer and subsequent changes to her body, she’s grateful for the community of support she has found because of it. Neither prison nor cancer will be allowed to define this joy-filled optimist, however. Susan is determined to find the silver lining in every storm cloud and enjoy each day as a precious gift with the people she loves. To Susan, a bad day is not allowed. Even on hard days, the people cheering her on, including family and friends, inspire her to keep fighting with joy and gratitude.
