Long Trail Day 2019 - Cathie's Page!
*Aug. 1 Update:
WOW! I am overwhelmed with everyone's generosity! Thank you all SO much for supporting the GMC through this fundraiser, for helping me go way beyond the fundraising goal, and for showing support as I prepare for my hike on Saturday! I'll be thinking of you all as I hit the trail!*
Hello, Friends & Family!
Welcome to my personal fundraising page for Long Trail Day! On Saturday, Aug. 3rd (aka "Long Trail Day!"), I will be hiking a section of the Long Trail and raising funds to support the Green Mountain Club. Simultaneously, other participants will be hiking other sections of the LT in order to hike the entire 272-mile Long Trail in one day!
The Green Mountain Club's mission is "to make the Vermont mountains play a larger part in the life of the people by protecting and maintaining the Long Trail System and fostering, through education, the stewardship of Vermont’s hiking trails and mountains." As an avid hiker this certainly sounds worthwhile to me! But, I think the mission is one that is significant for all of us when we keep in mind how important the well-being of our planet is for everyone.
Participating in the Long Trail Day is one little way that I can have some fun, take on a challenge, and give back to the trail that allows me to interact with the beautiful Vermont landscape.
Can you donate to support me in my goal?
