On Saturday, May 2nd, I'll be running the Rock the Ridge Endurance Challenge.
Set in the natural beauty of the Shawangunk Mountains of New York’s Hudson Valley, an area described as “one of Earth’s last great places,” the goal is to run or hike a 50-mile course within 18 hours.
One of the reasons I chose this race is to help raise funds to help ensure this environmentally sensitive land is protected from future industrial, commercial or residential development and to mitigate the effects of climate change by conserving over 8,000 acres of primarily forest-covered landscape.
Rock The Ridge supports a great cause...
This event supports Mohonk Preserve’s mission to protect the Shawangunk Mountains region and inspire people to care for, enjoy, and explore their natural world. With over 8,000 acres of mountain ridges, forests, fields, streams, ponds, and other unique and beautiful places, Mohonk Preserve is the largest member and visitor-supported nature preserve in New York State.
I've set a fundraising goal of $300. Please join me in supporting this great cause.
