The Steps for Soldiers Charity Hike is a special event to raise money and awareness for veterans by accomplishing the grueling Rim-to-Rim hike at the Grand Canyon...hiking from the North Rim to the South Rim in one day (September 20th, 2015)...23 miles across and 11,000ft of elevation change! Admittedly, I'm super nervous about this - it's one thing to run 39 races of 13.1 miles, but this will test different muscles physically...and mentally.
And personally, for me, I'm hiking this to honor the legacy of my friend Chris Knight - who loved the Grand Canyon, loved hiking and the adventurous path. This will no doubt be a meaningful experience all ways around.
Our goal - with your support - is to raise $40,000 for Team Red White and Blue (aka Team RWB) - an amazing organization helping veterans who have left active service to acclimate back into their communities.
