On Friday 1 Voice Trekking will begin our next adventure and fund raising event. We will be hiking 60 continuous miles on the Tuscarora Trail. The goal is to finish in 24 hours so we won't sleep. Starting at noon on Friday we will hike from Gore, Virginia to Hancock, Maryland. 14 hikers have banded together and committed to raising at least $500 to support The Samaritan Women Scholarship Fund .
To say I am excited is an understatement. I have been itching for a jaunt in the woods for some time and I am always up for a challenge. As Friday draws near, though, I can't help but feel a bit nervous. We plan and coordinate and try to make sure we cover all scenarios. But being in the woods for such a long time and walking in darkness has so many challenges that the unknown has a way of creeping in. We have dealt with adversity before and I am sure we will be fine. We have a support team that is following us in case we need assistance. Still, there is always the thought in the back of your head that someone could get seriously injured.
A big thanks goes out to all those who have and continue to support us either through spreading the word or giving selflessly. You are always with us when we're out there.
Wish us luck! Drop us a line over at the website and consider a donation. Even a single $1 goes a long way to helping someone get their life back on track, following tradgedy.
