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. A group of 22 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 all the way to the South Rim, located 22 miles away. It will be easier said than done; 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™ is a small, dedicated group of people from all over the United States, who not only share a love for adventure, but have a desire to 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 to ensure that these soldiers, airmen, sailors and marines are not forgotten, by providing intense programming aimed at aiding our troops and their families when they need it most. The chance to do something big for those who sacrifice so much was something we could not pass up!
