Steve Philips' Fundraiser:

Fastpacking The Long Trail to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester, NY

THE STORY:

This is a fundraiser to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester, NY. I plan on hiking the 272-mile Long Trail in Vermont, from Canada to Massachusetts, over the course of 7 days beginning September 10th, 2016. I've been keeping an ad hoc Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FPtheLT/) and as I've seen a few more people taking a look at what I'm up to, it seems a perfect opportunity to make this personal challenge more meaningful. While I'm hiking, my FB Page will be updated with my location, status reports, and even some pictures (cell coverage permitting.) My hope is that if you find this in any way fun to follow that you'd be willing to make a donation to this incredibly worthy cause. If you are not familiar with what the Ronald McDonald House charities do, please head on over to http://www.rmhc.org/ and take a look. The short version is this: They keep families with sick children close to each other and the care and resources they need. All of this is done FREE OF CHARGE to the families that need it. On top of that, RMHC has a solid track record of putting donations directly towards the work that they do, so you can feel good that your money is going to what's important (https://www.charitynavigator.org/index.cfm?bay=search.summary&orgid=9394). Please consider a donation. It can be a flat amount, or you can tie to to the miles I hike and donate at the end. Every dollar helps, and no amount is too small. Thank you for your generosity!

Steve, great meeting you on the trail and chatting about olive oil, injuries that heal during events, and living in Rochester vs NYC. I can't believe how fresh you looked six days in! Congrats, you're a rock star. 2 years ago
