Adam Hugoboom's Fundraiser:

Walk Off the War - Taking 22 to Zero

Each day, we lose 22 service members to suicide due to injuries suffered while serving all over the world. Warrior Hike is a foundation started by a Marine Captain who recognized this issue in himself and was able to "walk off the war" by separating himself from everyday stressors and hiking the Appalachian Trail. Now, Warrior Hike is a small foundation trying to get its roots planted by helping suffering Veterans do exactly the same thing.
Warrior Hike coordinates and facilitates with various entities in order to provide a guided hike in our country's incredible backyard. Veterans are able to apply through the small website to be part of the event. Then, each year in the spring, each service member the company can afford to take packs up their gear and starts the 6 month trek of the entire Appalachian Trail.
I have personally corresponded with the President and Founder of Warrior Hike , Sean Gobin, and I am working with him to provide assistance in any way I can. My goal is to create an annual event in the spring that will raise money for this incredible program and help to purchase supplies and equipment necessary to complete a hike of this magnitude. Eventually, Warrior Hike would like to expand their efforts to enable a hike of the Continental Divide Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail.
While I plan that event this winter, I would like to raise money to donate to Sean for next year's upcoming adventure. By the first of the year, I would like to present him with a donation of $2200 ( a number roughly matching the amount of miles on the Appalachian Trail!)

So, the bottom line... I need your help. With the holidays coming up, please take the time to help out those who need it... My brothers and sisters in the service. If you are family wanting to do something nice for me for Christmas, this is it! If you are a friend who has read this far, you might as are committed. Forego your next fast food meal, your next frozen yogurt or your next pack of smokes and make a small sacrifice for those who have sacrificed so much. Please take the time to donate anything you can spare. Here are some ideas!
Donate 22 bucks in an effort to lower that same number to zero!
Donate 11 bucks in honor of Veterans Day on 11/11!
Or just donate 2 bucks to let them know they were thought of and appreciated.

Thank you all for even considering and be on the lookout for an event invite in the spring! Thanks and Semper Fi! -Adam
