I just registered to do the Ultimate Hike, a one-day 28.3 mile hike on the Foothills Trail in SC and NC. I intend to do the entire hike barefoot. This blog will follow my progress during training and share the details of the big event on June 28, 2014.
I've been a barefoot hiker for nearly 4 years now. My longest hikes have been around 9-10 miles. A 28.3 mile day-hike in the mountains is going to be a challenge for me. I look forward to the next few months of training.
The goal of this event is to raise awareness and funds for CureSearch, a highly rated charity organiziation. CureSearch for Children's Cancer funds and supports targeted and innovative children's cancer research with measurable results, and is the authoritative source of information and resources for all those affected by children's cancer.
Help me reach my fundraising goal for CureSearch by donating here:
Thanks for your help!
More info about me, barefoot hiking and CureSearch will be added here over the next few months. Check back regularly for my progress and pictures from the trails.
