We're excited to be participating in Steps for Soldiers this September.
The Steps for Soldiers charity hike is a special event to raise money and awareness for supporting veterans by accomplishing the grueling rim-to-rim hike at the Grand Canyon. We will hike from the North Rim to the South Rim in one day - on September 20, 2015 - covering 23 miles and 11,000 ft of elevation change!
Our team's goal is to raise $40,000 for Team Red White and Blue, a nonprofit organization helping to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Team RWB has several programs to help veterans re-acclimate to their communities after returning from and/or leaving the service.

Both of us have family members and friends who have served our country, and this is our chance to give back to those that have made sacrifices for our freedom.
We decided to take on this adventure as a couple for many reasons. It will not only be a physical challenge, but it will also push us to raise awareness and funds for a worthy cause. And on top of that, we will join forces with several amazing people across the country to experience one of the world's beautiful wonders in a way not many people get to.
We hope that you'll join us in supporting Team RWB by making a donation to our Steps for Soldiers fundraiser. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
