I'm passing this along at the request of the coordinator of this event:
This Ultimate Hike event on May 14, 2011 to the Atlanta area. The event will be a one day, 27.5 mile trek on the Appalachian trail, starting in TN and ending near Banner Elk, NC. It will be the ultimate challenge not just for people that love the outdoors but for anyone willing to take on the challenge to help raise awareness and funds to support pediatric cancer research through the Children’s Oncology Group.
Those who participate will receive coaching and training that includes group hikes around the Atlanta area to help them train for this extreme endeavor.
I wanted to reach out and see if this is something you would be interested in sharing with your UrbanHikers?. We need all the help we can get in getting the word out about this ultimate challenge that benefits children’s cancer research. Whether it is through a FB post or an email to all members.
We are holding information meetings Jan 26-Feb 3 at local stores throughout the Atlanta where those interested can ask questions, meet coaches & staff, get all the details and register for the hike. Those interested can view dates and RSVP for information meetings on our website: www.ultimatehike.com.
