Grandma Joy's Dream Road Trip

$7,650 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 129 people in 26 months
My grandma Joy is 87-years-old. Despite her inspiring attitude and sense of adventure, financial strains have prevented her from traveling much throughout her life. Two years ago I took my grandma to the Smoky Mountains. It was the first time she ever laid eyes on a mountain or camped under the stars. She even climbed a mountain with me much to the amazement of everyone we met during our ascent.

My grandma is a leukemia survivor who has battled severe and recurrent episodes of pneumonia in recent years. She fell very ill and was hospitalized in April. Her road to recovery was difficult, and it made me realize how tragic it would be to lose her before she witnessed Old Faithful erupt. Fortunately she is back to her vibrant self, and I want to seize this moment to give her the adventure of a lifetime while she is still alive and healthy.

I have planned a 3-week road trip from Ohio to some of America's most scenic lands: Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier, Joshua Tree, Grand Canyon, Sequioa National Park, and Utah's Canyonlands. We need $1,000 per week to cover the costs of fuel, food, and lodging. If we have any money to spare, grandma wants to go skydiving. 

Please help me make this dream come true for an amazing woman who wants to live her life to the fullest.

Thank you!
Brad
