On February 22, Steve began a six month journey to through hike the 2,185 miles of the Appalachian Trail. He is hiking the trail to help call awareness to the Big Brother/Big Sister Program as well as to raise funds for the local program here in WNC.

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/.

If you are interested in supporting this cause by contributing financially to the local Big Brother/Big Sister Program you may do so by contributing through the Go Fund Me compaign.  Thank you for your support.

A great person with great passion doing great things. My wife and I were fortunate enough to meet Steve in Vermont. A documentary about his trip would be great
