David's Ice Age Trail Memorial

On November 9th, my brother, David, took his own life. David was battling with anxiety/depression and always found solace hiking the Ice Age Trail in Wisconsin.

David had two dreams: (1) hike all 1200 miles of the Ice Age Trail, and (2) buy land to help extend the trail.

Today, the Ice Age Trail is a work in progress; only 600 miles of trail are complete. The rest of the trail is done by road walks.

After talking with the CEO of the Ice Age Trail Alliance*,
all donations will be used toward purchasing land to create new trail.

Our goal is to raise $30,000 to purchase a beautiful 20 acre parcel of land in Marathon county. The parcel adjoins existing Ice Age Trail property and will preserve land in perpetuity for future generations.

Your support means so much to David and our family. We are extremely grateful for your donations to promote one of David's passions, the Ice Age National Scenic Trail.

Thank you
