Hiking the PCT is a luxury. I know it doesn’t seem like walking for months carrying what you need to live (and then some) on your back is an extravagance.
But the freedom to do what I want and having the health to do it are both exceptional opportunities most in the world won’t have the chance to choose.
And so when I hike, I’ll do it for myself, but I’ll also do it for others.
I’m hiking for the Academia de Atletismo.
It’s a place I’ve written about before which provides kids in Nicaragua the opportunity to be kids. It gives them a safe place. It gives them a place to learn discipline that can help them throughout their lives.
So I can help, and you can too.
• $1.50 registers a child for a competition.
• $14 buys a child’s uniform
• $120 buys safe transportation round trip to a track meet for 15 kids
I could go on, but from my experience, people who have read this far already know whether they are interested in more complete information so without further ado -
