Hike with a Cause
**3/31/2008 Edit** – The charity for this hike has changed. See Geek Hike Gets a New Charity.
One of my cousin‘s classmates, Joe Frambach, will start his thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail on May 1st of this year. He’s hiking to raise funding and awareness for Gilda’s Club Western Pennsylvania, an organization which provides emotional support for families affected by cancer.
**3/31/2008 Note** – Yeah, I’m not sure how to update the below paragraph. I still love the AT and dogs, so I’ll let it stick. 🙂
I love the Appalachian Trail, I absolutely adore dogs and I certainly don’t mind deducting charitable donations from my taxes. With the exception of the last part about taxes, I have plenty of pictures to support my claims (Pictures about taxes tend to be boring).
As you can expect, Joe’s fundraiser is pretty appealing to me. If you are interested in donating as well, you may do so via his First Giving site.
