THE STORY:

Hiking is a passion of mine.  I can remember doing it as a young child, with my mother and as a mother I took my kids hiking as well. It was something we always enjoyed as a family and still do.

When I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Breast Cancer I found a deeper love and appreciation for life and in that journey I really discovered my love for hiking.  There's something about the way I feel when I'm on the trail...the smells, the sounds, the scenery...just everything that makes me present in that moment. 

In celebration of being 4 years Cancer Free I pledge to HIKE 40 miles, 40 trails, or 40 unique hikes to support American Hiking Society's Outreach programs, National Trails Day and Families on Foot. 

Please donate to help me reach or exceed my goal for The American Hiking Society.

For 40 years, American Hiking Society has been committed to increasing Americans’ participation in and enjoyment of hiking and conducts outreach through events, educational materials and partnerships with other recreation and conservation organizations.

June 4, 2016 is our 24th National Trails Day, the largest celebration of trails in the country. Find an event near you to add to your HIKE 40 at nationaltrailsday.americanhiking.org. Or get tips and tricks to get your family out on the trail while supporting our Families on Foot initiative.

The three hikers with the top pledges for American Hiking Society's Outreach program by their 40th birthday on October 13, 2016 will win a prize package including Leki poles, an Adventure Medical Kit, a Columbia backpack.
