Oh, and yes my goal to raise $22,500 was reached yesterday before reaching the end of the 100 Mile Wilderness!!!!! I cannot say thank you enough to Jim Erik, Steve Glover, Judy Hogan, Sarita Harjo, Stephen & Gail Findlay, Ellen & Charles Snodgrass, Thomas Haser, JohnandLaura Lankford, John Costa, Judy Norton, Barry & Amy Hulsey, Joseph Caron and David Carson for believing in this cause for Big Brothers/Big Sisters and putting us over the top of our goal. There are the two f…undraisers that will take place upon my return, the BBQ Dinner and Jenean Hornbuckle‘s limited edition painting, so let’s set the bar even higher & see if we can reach the $25,000 mark!!! Won’t you help provide HOPE in the lives of children in Graham & Swain Counties who just need a little encouragement in their lives???!!! Thank you SOOOO MUCH to those who have already contributed to the “Hiking For Hope” campaign!!!!!!
