Hike for Mike July 25/26/27 2014

Hike for Mike

Mike and I have been on countless adventures together some of which were the best times in my life. Needless to say when you have certain things in common like Mike and I do a friendship is easily formed. Mike has a certain passion, a drive to have fun and enjoy life that is hard to find in most people but is clearly evident when he flashes that unforgettable ear to ear smile.

About four years ago Mike was diagnosed with ALS and because of the early onset of his disease Mike was never able to become financially established in life.

To show support and help raise money for my good friend Dugan, From July 25-27th I will hike as far as physically possible for 3 days in the high peaks of the Adirondacks. In an effort to create an exciting and unique fundraiser, donations can be made based on the number of peaks above 4000 ft I summit.

ADirondacks quick facts

Team Dugan

Keep in mind:

  • There are 46 high peaks, 210 miles, 65,000 ft of elevation gain
  • In the past 5 years I have only reached the summit of 15 high peaks in the Adirondacks
  • The unsupported speed record for hiking all 46 high peaks is 7 days 14 hrs and 15 min
  • The supported (team of help) speed record is 3 days 17hrs and 14 min
  • I will have a GPS device with me that will track all my movements and store precise data. After my trip everyone will be able to see how far I went each day, how long it took me, etc.

To Pledge

Team Dugan

Submit the amount per peak( $1.00 minimum) that you would like to donate along with your contact information to Gbonisteel1@gmail.com by July 24, 2014.

In order to estimate your pledge, I hope to summit (climb) 15 peaks. (ie. if you pledge $1.00 per peak and I summit 15 peaks your total pledge amount will end up being $15.00)
