BENEFITING: GARY SINISE CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: May 20, 2016
Hi my name is Jac Carlton and my friends name is Jordan. We are about to embark on a hike on May 20, 2016 to the Colorado Trail in Colorado of course. It is 486 miles and should take us 2-3 weeks to complete as much as we can of the trail. We are going to try to finish as much of the trail as we can in a 2-3 week time period. The trail spans from Denver to Durango.
We originally thought that we would do this hike just for ourselves and our dreams. Then we decided that we could figure out a way to turn our trek into a fundraiser. From there we figured out that our charity to donate to would be the Gary Sinise Foundation. Their mission is to "serve our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need." We feel like this is a great foundation to support our troops and other service members and their families for everything that they do for us.
We would really support anything you are willing to give. We also understand that it is not possible for everyone to contribute, we would just like you to spread the word about what we are doing so we can get as much support as possible.
Jac and Jordan
