Officially launches September 2019!
Saturday, May 2, 2020, to Saturday, May 9, 2020
Where: The Laurel Highlands & Ohiopyle
What: A five-day backpacking trip beginning on the north end of the LHHT (Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail) and ending at Ohiopyle, the south end.
We are bringing a diverse team from all over the U.S. from the outdoor community to connect in person on the trail to share our experiences, skills, and ideas to lead others towards making a difference, hike for veterans and first responders and experience the outdoors as a team.
We have partnered with #Mission22 to bring awareness and raise support for veterans with PTSD. Mission 22 is a non-profit who combats the ever-rising veteran suicide rate. Every day, more than twenty veterans are lost to suicide. Mission 22 wants to bring that number to zero. It does this with three main programs; veteran treatment programs, memorials, and national awareness. Mission 22 provides treatment programs to veterans for Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues they might be facing. It organizes events and builds memorials to create social impact and awareness for these issues.
