Hike for the Homeless

I came across this really cool opportunity today and wanted to share.

Saturday, March 7th there is an event called "Hike for the Homeless" which is an opportunity to work to end homelessness. You can put a team together and get sponsors to help support the cause. Or you can hike by yourself. I plan on putting a team together to make it more fun!

Each participant contributes a registration fee of $25 ($15 for students) and will receive:
Free park entry (usually $6) for the day
A high-quality T-shirt
A hearty breakfast burrito
98.7 The Peak – music & games

The hike is at Estrella Mountain Regional Park in Goodyear, AZ, which I have actually hiked multiple times and it has some awesome trails. There are 3 different hiking options:
½ mile barrier-free (9:00am)
2 mile moderate hike (9:00am)
6 mile trail for experienced hikers (7:30am)
I think its a cool opportunity to get some excercise and make a difference in our community at the same time!

All of the information is on the website.
