I am beginning a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in March of 2012. Part of my motivation for this hike is to raise money for blood cancer research because my mother passed away from nonhodgkin's lymphoma in May of 2011.
I have a limited amount of pictures of myself and my mother or of just my mother available to me quickly. Since I am leaving tomorrow, I'd appreciate it if you would email me any pictures of her or us that you think would be appropriate to add to this site.
Please bear with me as I get this site running.
Once my fundraising organization is linked to this page, I will begin taking pledges by the mile. Keep in mind that the entire Appalachian Trail is approximately 2,180 miles. I will attempt to hike all of it. I will use milages published in David Miller's "The AT Guide" to determine how far I have hiked.
Thank you in advance for your contributions to this effort.
I would like to kick things off by pledging $0.50/mile.
