We are raising money for Streetwise and Appalachian Mountain Club by hiking the entirety of the John Muir Trail (221 miles) in 7 days. We are calling the hike the JMT Challenge ( in hopes that it becomes something people do every year to raise money and awareness for causes they care about. The "JMT" generally takes folks 18-21 days but we are attempting to complete the hike in one week (the "challenge" part) by hiking 15-18 hours a day, covering 47,000 feet of elevation gain, including summiting the tallest peak in the contiguous U.S., Mount Whitney. 100% of the proceeds will go to our charities Streetwise (helping disadvantaged, low-income individuals realize their career potential) and Appalachian Mountain Club (helping introduce children to nature at an early age in a technology-filled world).
