This fundraiser is in memory of Laure Fourcade who died from ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease/Maladie de Charcot) five years ago. On her birthday, our team intends to celebrate Laure's life by pushing the limits and completing 50 miles (80km) at our own pace.
Now in its 2nd year, Rock The Ridge is a 50-mile endurance challenge set in the natural beauty of the Mohonk Preserve, a vast, non-profit nature preserve situated in the mid-Hudson Valley of New York State. The goal is to traverse a 50-mile course within 24 hours or less by walking, running, or any combination thereof.
Funds raised will go to the Mohonk Preserve in support of its mission to safeguard the land of the Shawangunk Ridge and encourage people to experience nature.
