THE STORY:

I began a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in March of 2012 and completed it in March of 2013. Part of my motivation for this hike was to raise money for blood cancer research because my mother passed away from nonhodgkin's lymphoma in May of 2011. The University of Michigan has a fantastic haemotology oncology research group which gets funding through the University of Michigan Regents. So even though it looks like the Regents keep all of the donations, it is acually sent to a group of labs and doctors who perform studies and clinical trials. This is their website: http://www.med.umich.edu/intmed/hemonc/research/index.html

My fundraising organization is linked to this page and I am taking donations by the mile. Keep in mind that the entire Appalachian Trail was between 2,184.2 and 2,185 miles when I hiked it. I have hiked all but 12 miles of it. So approximately 2,172.2 miles or more. The weather conditions became dangerous in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and I had to skip a section of trail that I worked on finishing the summer of 2013. I just have one side of Mt. Washington left to climb. I use milages published in David Miller's "The AT Guide" 2012 and 2013 editions to determine how far I have hiked.

Thank you in advance for your contributions to this effort.

I would like to kick things off by pledging $0.50/mile.

I pledge 5 cents for each mile hiked- and am too lazy to do the math at this time but I know it will come out to over $100 cause I know Nora is going to make every mile marker. I am so proud of you my friend. 5 years ago
