BENEFITING: WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT

ORGANIZER: Steps For Soldiers

EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2012

THE STORY:

UPDATE: OCTOBER 17, 2012:

Thirteen awesome, dedicated, commited, fantastic individuals from all over the country did an amazing thing yesterday, hiking almost 23 miles across the Grand Canyon in 13-1/2 hours...all to support those who fight for our freedoms and the amazing organization called Wounded Warrior Project.

We laughed. We cried. We wondered if we would make it...or if this was really a good idea after all!!!

In the end, we all pushed ourselves up those last painful miles and made it to the South Rim.

A Grand Adventure for a Grand Cause

On Tuesday October 16, 2012, I am going to attempt one of the most challenging things I have ever done: a Rim-to-Rim Hike at the Grand Canyon. Twenty hikers from all over the United States are joining me on this project we call:

Steps for Soldiers.

After months of training and preparation, we will begin in the pre-dawn darkness at the North Kaibab trailhead on the Grand Canyon’s North Rim.  From there, we will hike to the South Rim, 22 miles away. The hike features over 11,000 feet of elevation change, a 45 degree swing in temperature and over 60,000 steps – all in one day!

A Chance to Give Back

Steps for Soldiers was started by a small, dedicated group of people who share a love for adventure and a belief that they can make a difference.  The Steps for Soldiers Hike at the Grand Canyon benefits an amazing organization called Wounded Warrior Project™.

Wounded Warrior Project™ supports men and women in the military who have been injured in various theatres of conflict. The organization helps these soldiers, airmen, sailors and marines by providing a multitude of resources to them and their families.  For me, the chance to do something big for those who sacrificed so much was something  I could not pass up!

An Invitation

As a team member of the inaugural Steps for Soldiers Hike at the Grand Canyon, I am thrilled to be a part of something that will contribute to those who serve for us and guarantee our freedoms. I have already dedicated a significant amount of time and energy into this project.

As a group, we have made a commitment to raise $40,000 for Wounded Warrior Project.  I invite you to join us today by making a donation to Wounded Warrior Project on behalf of Steps for Soldiers.

Your gift can really make a difference.

If you believe, as I do, that you CAN make a difference, consider a gift  to Wounded Warrior Project today. Any support will be appreciated - and contributions will go directly to Wounded Warrior Project™.

Thanks and God Bless!
