Egon's AT Trek for Solar Power

Egon Overgaard, a 78-year-old man from Longville, Minnesota, is hiking the Appalachian Trail to help raise money for Salem Lutheran Church's Solar Array project.

Egon Overgaard has wanted to hike this entire Appalachian Trail for many decades. At age 78, he decided now was the time. Combining his love of the outdoors and helping on projects inspired Egon to hike with a purpose. He is using his time on the trail to raise awareness and support for renewable energy options, specifically for his local church, Salem Lutheran Church in Longville, Minnesota.

It is such an inspiration that members of a little congregation in a small town are dreaming big and thinking not just of themselves but of their children's and grandchildren's future. This project is a clean energy gift to God's creation.

Hiking the 2,190 miles of Appalachian Trail and raising money for an important project, Egon is doing his part to take care of God's creation. You can help him reach his fundraising goals and support his vision to support future generations.

The monies raised will help complete the Solar Array Project at Salem Lutheran Church in Longville, Minnesota.

He just finished the Trail! Congratulations!
