BENEFITING: A LEG TO STAND ON INC
EVENT DATE: Feb 16, 2013
Mileage Tracker: 42
Dave and I have found our passion in hiking. Every time we climb a challenging mountain to a beautiful vista or complete difficult mileage, together we are reminded how fortunate we are to be physically capable of getting closer to fulfilling our dream of hiking the entire trail by 2018.
So many children around the world can never hope to climb a mountain or even run down the road to play with their friends because they have lost a limb/limbs to accidents or were born without them. We would like to use our passion for hiking the Appalachian Trail to raise money for A Leg To Stand On (www.ALTSO.org) For just $250 raised a child can receive a prosthetic leg, and will be given the freedom of mobility that we often take for granted and that we are so blessed to enjoy.
Dave and I are going to try and complete THE MARYLAND CHALLENGE on Dave's 35th birthday February 16th, 2013. The Appalachian Trail runs 42 miles through Maryland and we are going to attempt to hike it in ONE DAY. The most we have ever hiked in 1 day is 20 miles.
Our goal is to get enough support for this Challenge to provide TEN children with prosthetic limbs and give them a life of mobility.
So help us meet our goal of 42 miles in ONE day and $2500 for A Leg To Stand On. We HOPE to complete ALL 42 miles.
Anyone who donates a total of $100 or more will receive a gift from Pigtails and The Pirate King.
We will share the stories and photos of the children that have been helped by this fundraiser. How great would it be to see these kids mobile again, exploring and moving freely?
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us through our facebook page Pigtails & The Pirate King. We will be posting on twitter and facebook throughout the hike.
Thank you friends and family for your continued support for our AT adventures
