We are so excited to see you all this Saturday, April 1st, at our 10th Annual HIKE FOR HOPE, Finding our Way!! We are inching closer to our goal of $150,000 because of your amazing support! I have no doubt that we will achieve it with this community. 💜 If you can do a final invite or push on social media, that would be great!!
We are so excited about this year's hike and know it will be a morning to remember. It looks like the ☀ will be shining (finally) and It will be a beautiful day for a hike, with temps ranging from 60 to 70 throughout the morning.
Here are some details that you will need to know for the event:
For those who would like to come by and pick up your t-shirt and Hike for HOPE sticker (the stickers are new this year and are perfect for water bottles and laptops as a memory of the event), we are offering early pick-up. If you get your t-shirts/stickers early, you can bypass any lines at the hike and start enjoying the festivities when you get to the hike. We encourage you to pick up your items in advance. You will be able to grab your t-shirt/sticker the morning of the hike at the registration table if you are unable to make it on one of these evenings.

🌄The hike will be a "hike at your own pace" style. Pick up t-shirts/stickers (if you did not pick them up during the week), hike on a marked trail (two options, one being flat and the other an hour-long hike), grab some grub, dance a little, enjoy our activities, hang with your friends, and remember our loved ones.

(please note if you pick up your items before Saturday, there is no need to check in at the hike).
