Hike for Hope
After being involved in the BBBS program for the past twelve years as a member of the local advisory council, as local coordinator, as well as a big brother to a local youngster, he has witnessed the struggles and challenges that so many of our local youth face each and every day of their lives. At the same time he has witnessed so many lives completely turned around by this program.
We live in a very rural mountain community where poverty rates are extremely high. Local youth do not have the exposure to many opportunities youth in most other areas take for granted. Funds raised through Steve's hike will provide needed financial resources in order to provide “hope” in many of these young people’s lives.
Steve will be posting a blog during his journey. If interested in following his progress and hearing his story along his journey you can find his blog at SteveClaxton.com/hiker/.
