IT ALL STARTED WITH AN IDEA. I wanted to mix my love for adventure and travel with a burning desire to help those in need. Five years later, my annual travelanthropic treks have raised thousands of dollars for charities across the world.
HIKE FOR HOPE 2012 will see a return to the Camino de Santiago (home of 2010's Hike for Habitat). This year's charity partner Catalyst Foundation uses a community development approach to fight poverty and human trafficking throughout Vietnam to save at-risk children.
The Hike for Hope team of travelanthropic adventurees will also journey along The Pennine Way, Cape Wrath Trail, East Highland Way, and Outer Hebs. Across 4 countries (England, France, Scotland, and Spain) we will hike nearly 1200 miles between May 31st and September 1st.
YOUR HELP is needed to help us reach our fundraising goal of $20,000 for the Catalyst Foundation. You can pledge your support per mile or per trail. No donation is too big or too small and your donation is 100% tax-deductible. Together we will make a difference in the lives of children in need.
