Hello My Name is Michelle Hummel, I retired after 30 years of service to the Charlotte community as a First Responder. This next journey of my life is both personal and to help others. I am going to start a thru hike adventure of the Appalachian Trail to fullfill a personal goal and raise money to help charities that are near and dear to my heart. The hike is 2193 miles and I plan to make videos all along the way. Please follow me on my YouTube channel as I will make posts over the next six months while on this journey. I hope to raise $25,000 to be equally split between 5 charities. - St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, - Warrior Jace Foundation, - Salute to Heroes Charlotte Foundation, - Charlotte Cobras Football, - COPS 4 the CURE. I appreciate any support you can offer and thank you for taking the time and following along with me on my adventures on the AppalachianTrail.
