I can’t believe it! I’m challenging….PUSHING myself to hike not just IN the Grand Canyon, but across it!
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! Your donations AND support will encourage me to train and make the trek!
This August, I will be joining the Project Athena Foundation [http://www.projectathena.org] on a 2-day hike THROUGH the Grand Canyon in support of survivors who have suffered a medical setback. Part of my motivation is to support those that have had a medical setback and are challenging themselves to complete their own adventurous dream! And part of it is to do the hike in honor of my father, who found his own strength during his health and physical challenges.
As a family we faced our own hardships, and to add to it, my father’s health wasn’t improving and led to a leg amputation. I was there post-surgery, where he’d given up hope and was struggling with this loss and none of us could really figure out how he would get through his every day without someone being by his side. Instead, in time, my father found his own definition of living and strength.
Your donations will help Project Athena provide travel expenses, entry fees, coaching, equipment and, most importantly, the encouragement and inspiration to help strong, amazing women make that life-affirming transition from Survivor to Athlete. Every dollar donated goes directly toward helping these survivors achieve their adventurous dreams. Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
