Hiking the AT for Radnor ABC

What am I doing?
I am hiking the Appalachian Trail to benefit the Radnor ABC House. I intend to raise $2 for every mile that I hike, for a total of $4356 to support the program and the students that participate in it. I will be contributed 5 cents/mile for a total of $108.90 out of my own pocket, and hope that you can help  me raise the rest of the $4256!  You can donate at the link below!


What is the ABC House?
The Radnor A Better Chance program takes academically and professionally promising low income minority students from disadvantaged public school systems and brings them to attend Radnor High School. These students live together on West Wayne and work hard to attend great colleges and pursue their career goals. The ABC program helps them along the way by providing housing, food, support, trips home, advising, and most importantly, a inclusive community in the student's new home (a predominantly white suburb). The ABC House depends ENTIRELY on donations to support their 10 students every year, so any and everything you can spare is greatly appreciated on their end.
