Hike For The Homelss OFFICIAL

A couple days ago I posted a blog about an opportunity I came across at work called "Hike for the Homeless." After about a week of spreading the word, we finally put a team together! My friend Tara has really helped me along the forefront of this and encouraging people to join as well. At first we talked about making it a small group thing but then we realized if we invited more people we could make a bigger impact!

So here is YOUR official invitation to join team "3F" for a 2 mile scenic hike up the Estrella Mountains in Goodyear Arizona!

850 people attended the Hike for the Homeless in 2008, and raised over $54,000 that went directly to St. Joseph the Worker's program to assist homeless and other disadvantaged individuals secure employment.

Hiker Information:

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 - guaranteed only if registered by March 2, 2009
A hearty breakfast burrito
98.7 The Peak – music & games

Plenty of shaded picnic areas

3 trail options:
½ mile barrier-free (9:00am)
2 mile moderate hike (9:00am)

Consider putting together a team this year. Below are some highlights of team participation. Teams of any size are welcome as are individuals! Team awards will include:
