BENEFITING: Mohonk Preserve, Inc.
EVENT: 2016 Rock the Ridge 50
EVENT DATE: Apr 30, 2016
Now in its 4th year, Rock The Ridge continues its tradition of achievement, community, and a dedication to preserving the natural environment for future generations to enjoy. Conceived in the spirit of President John F. Kennedy's call to Americans to get fit, Rock The Ridge renews this challenge from the early 1960s and places it right in the heart of the magnificent Shawangunk Ridge, land which The Nature Conservancy has described as “one of Earth's last great places. Set in the 8,000-acre Mohonk Preserve, the course winds along beautiful carriage trails, through the forests and across the magnificent ridgelines of the Preserve lands. Whether you choose to walk, run, or do a combination of both, Rock the Ridge is a spectacular outdoor adventure, and an accomplishment that you’ll be proud of for a long time!
The men of Pararescue NY have long trained at the Mohonk Preserve, an ideal training location for ropes rescue and adverse terrain training. All funds will go to the preservation of this land for not only nature lovers but for rescue organizations to continue to train.
