I have pledged to HIKE 40 miles, 40 trails, or 40 unique hikes to support American Hiking Society's trail advocacy program.
For 40 years, American Hiking Society has been the national voice for hikers to shape public policy and legislation affecting hiking and trails. Their efforts ensure funding for hiking trails, the preservation of natural areas and the protection of hiking experiences.
The three hikers with the top pledges for American Hiking Society's Advocacy program by their 40th birthday on October 13, 2016 will win a prize package including Leki poles, an Adventure Medical kit, a Columbia backpack.
