CHALLENGERS LOVE SHARING THEIR JOURNEY WITH OTHERS
"Hiking helped me during my battle with breast cancer, it kept me strong, positive and healthy enough to fight better against chemo and radiation treatment. I am 15 months cancer-free and I strongly believe hiking helped me."
"I made it! I hiked 52 trails in one year!! I can’t even begin to describe the feeling of being done. Of completing one of the hardest challenges I have ever taken on. I’m stronger now than I was a year ago."
"When I finished my 52 Hike Challenge I felt incredibly accomplished. I felt like for the first time in my life I started using my time to do something that was just for me. I must say that the biggest accomplishment comes after you finish. Since finishing my challenge I have done and decided to do so many things I would've said no to in the past. "
