Hello. My name is Kevin J. Tarpey. That's me, the goofy looking fellow in the picture to your left. In early July, I will attempt to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail to raise money for the Cameron Neely Foundation for Cancer Care in honor of my parents who both passed away from the disease. I'll start by climbing Katahdin in northern Maine and if all goes well I'll walk over 2000 miles south to Springer Mountain in Georgia. Please visit my blog (www.thegreenhoof.com) to learn more about my parents, Kevin and Carmela Tarpey, how their compassion and vivacity inspired my trek or to just follow along as I walk along the rocky spine of eastern United States! Thank you for donating!
