Arum and I are doing this run to raise money for the Mohonk Preserve. Here is text that I did not write that explains the Preserve:
The Preserve is a nonprofit nature preserve that protects over 7,000 acres. People come from all over the world to visit the beautiful cliffs, streams and fields the Preserve protects. The Gunks are also the premier rock-climbing area in the east. But at the heart of this amazing place are the trails and carriage roads that visitors use for running, hiking, bicycling and horseback riding. In addition to recreation, the Preserve’s research center has been tracking environmental changes for over 100 years, and the education program introduces school children to the wonders of nature.
