THE STORY:

Christine Kingery wrote -

The Sole Survivors: We are a dysfunctional team of 12 non-runners who got together and thought, oh what the heck, the 12 of us can team up and run 196.2 miles through the Adirondack Mountains, across tough terrain! Where there is a will there is a way, right? So...our team consists of the elderly, the recently-surgerized and feeble, the overweight, and the planning-challenged. Think we can handle it? Yeah, we aren't sure either. At least we have one or two serious runners on the team. We wanted to use our efforts to raise money for a worthy cause, and our team chose the Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK). We chose this organization because every member of our team enjoys the outdoors and the mountains. We have all spent weekends and holidays enjoying the beautiful scenery in upstate New York, and we would like to give back to an organization that has provided happy memories for us all! Plus, we're going to be running right across their terrain! It's nice to help support them! The ADK was founded in 1922 and has been dedicated to protecting the wild lands and waters in the Adirondacks through environmental advocacy and trail construction and maintenance. ADK offers a variety of educational programs, outdoor skills workshops, and lectures aimed at instilling a love of the natural world in people of all ages. the ADK operate the High Peaks Information Center, the Adirondack Loj, the Johns Brook Lodge, and a wilderness compound in the Adirondack high peaks. ADK also publishes comprehensive hiking, padding, and winter sports guides and trail maps, as well as books on Adirondack nature, history, and lore. (These resources have come in handy for me as I've puttered around the woods.) In short: The ADK is in charge of hanging up those trail marker signs that help make sure you don't get lost when you're wandering about in the woods. Those trail markers have saved my butt a number of times, and I'm happy to ensure that they will be there for nature lovers in the years to come! Please help support our team of misfits in supporting this worthy organization! And, you know, cross your fingers and hope we make it across the finish line in Lake Placid, because we need the good luck! Sincerely, Team Sole Survivors
