“Fund-Race” Us to Katahdin!
Our original goal goal was to raise $4 per mile of the Appalachian Trail. The trail is 2,193 miles which made our financial goal $8,772. You all have already exceeded this goal and are now working towards our new goal! We have challenged you (the donors) to complete the equivalent of what is called a YoYo hike of the A.T. with your donations. This is when you hike from the southern end to the northern end of the trail and then turn around and hike back to the southern end. $4 still equals a mile but now you are trying to go 4,386 miles.
Follow along to see who will finish first. Will Hero and BAM make it to Katahdin before the donors raise enough money to get back to Springer Mountain?! See below and the maps for current status of the “Fund-Racer”!
Funds Raised So Far: $16,655.30 equal to 4,163.8 miles of trail & helping provide enough food for over 66,621 meals!)
Miles Hero and BAM have hiked so far: 1,736.3 and we’re not stopping!
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed and supported us so far! We are so Grateful.
