In March 2014 I stepped onto the Appalachian Trail with 2 goals. 1) To raise money for a wonderful non-profit organization and 2) to realize a life long dream and complete the AT. With the help of many friends and strangers, I reached one goal. We raised over $11,000 for the Brent Woodall Foundation for Exceptional Children. After hiking over 1,000 miles, injuries stopped me from completing my second goal. I wont let that stop me, I will continue my hike beginning 04/25/2015. I plan to complete approximately 400 miles before I have to return to work and hopefully the remaining distance in 2016. Please continue to follow me on my journey. I read all comments posted on my blog, they motivate me, so keep them coming.
