Mt. Mitchell 40th Bday Summit
Our Team Story
On June 20, stand up to the darkness of Alzheimer’s. Join our team for The Longest Day, the day the Alzheimer’s Association calls on everyone to fight Alzheimer’s disease. Together, we'll raise funds and awareness for Alzheimer's care, support and research.
For my 40th birthday this April, I have set before myself the challenge of summiting the highest peak east of the Mississippi river: Mt Mitchell. I want to mark this new chapter in my life by giving myself a challenge that will benefit my health and healing and hopefully help others through fundraising. In lieu of happy birthday wishes, I hope you'll consider joining my team on the hike and donating to this cause that is so near and dear to my heart.
Where: Mt. Mitchell State Park - the Old Mitchell Trail, a 2.2 mile one-way strenuous hike up to the peak starting at the park office
When: morning of Sunday, April 19, 2020
Who: anyone wants to join!
What: trails at this altitude can be icy - be sure to bring appropriate shoes, microspikes, and hiking poles for stability
Future hikes TBD - I will definitely be doing a hike on June 20th as well!
