THE STORY:

     1.  The Details - what is this?

On June 24th, 2015, I'll begin a 7-day journey to backpack the 221-mile John Muir Trail in California's majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. As a way to give back to the people and organizations that have made the outdoors more accessible to millions of Americans, all supporting donations will go directly to the leading 501(c)(3) non-profit in environmental conversation, The Sierra Club Foundation.

     2.  The Cause - what are you supporting?

100% of your tax-deductible donation, will will go to The Sierra Club Foundation (EIN 94-6069890). They make the great outdoors available for future generations to enjoy by funding a variety of charitable and philanthropic campaigns.

The Sierra Club Foundation - Bridges the intersection of strategic philanthropy and grassroots advocacy. As a publicly supported charity, they partner with thousands of donors across the U.S. to invest in organizations that have an outsized impact on the health of the planet. To support their vision for a powerful, inclusive environmental movement focused on climate solutions, conservation, and movement building, they give special consideration to charitable programs that reinforce and advance these imperatives.  TSCF is a main financial backer of the Sierra Club.  Details for the TSCF: Charity Navigator Four-Star Non-Profit, Guidestar Analysis and Evidence of Impact, Great Nonprofits Profile, TSCF Publications.

     3.  The Hike - what's the JMT?

The John Muir Trail is located in Central California in the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountain Range.  Beginning in Yosemitie Valley, the trail travels 210.4 miles south to its terminus atop Mount Whitney; however, the trail effectively ends 10.6 miles later at the Mount Whitney Portal near Lone Pine, CA.  The trail is know for it's majestic scenery, numerous rugged high passes, and significant elevation changes.  The majority of the trail travels above 10,000 feet, which can present many difficulties for hikers during the first days on the trail.

         4.  Join the Cause - so you're interested in backpacking?

"I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in."
