A Grand Adventure for a Grand Cause
On Tuesday October 16, 2012, we are going to attempt one of the most challenging things we have ever done: a Rim-to-Rim Hike at the Grand Canyon. Twenty hikers are participating as a team called Steps for Soldiers.
After months of training and preparation, we will begin in the pre-dawn darkness at the North Kaibab trailhead on the Grand Canyon’s North Rim. From there, we will hike to the South Rim, located 22 miles away; the hike features over 11,000 feet of elevation change, a 45 degree swing in temperature and over 60,000 steps – all in one day!
A Chance to Give Back
Steps for Soldiers™ was started by a small, dedicated group of people from all over the United States, who share a love for adventure and believe they can make a difference. The Steps for Soldiers™ hike at the Grand Canyon benefits an amazing organization called Wounded Warrior Project™.
Wounded Warrior Project™ supports men and women in the military who have been injured in theatres of conflict. The organization helps these soldiers, airmen, sailors and marines by providing a multitude of resources for them and their families. The chance to do something big for those who sacrifice so much was something we could not pass up!
An Invitation to You
As a member of the inaugural Steps for Soldiers™ Hike at the Grand Canyon, we are each proud to be a part of something that will contribute to those who serve for us and guarantee our freedoms.
Each of us has contributed a significant amount of time and energy into this cause and we have each made a personal commitment to raise $2,000 for Wounded Warrior Project. This is why we need your help!
Your gift can really make a difference.
