Proceeds benefit PCTA and Big City Mountaineers
Based on 2,650 estimated Miles, each worth $1.68
UPDATE: We've already reached our target (which was $2650.00 - a dollar per mile) due to some very generous supporters. Thanks! So I raised the goal to $2 a mile! I had no idea what goal to go for, frankly. Here we go again!
Original message below:
Hello all! I wanted to use my first thru hike to give back to the very wilderness and trail that I’m using and that I love. I thought it might be nice to do a pledge drive for every mile hiked and then donate that money back to the PCTA (Pacific Crest Trail Association), which oversees the trail, as well as to the Big City Mountaineers, which helps under-resourced kids get into the wilderness and enjoy it and learn critical life skills along the way. Split 50/50 between PCTA and the BCM.
The target is set to the length of the trail. I may only make a bit of money on this thing (no pressure), but I think it would be great to actually get one dollar per mile of the 2650 mile trail.
NOTE: You can pledge for each mile at any amount, even a tiny amount per mile (pledging is my preference seeing that it will motivate me more), or you can do a one-time donation and be done with it. Even a dollar helps!
For anyone who does donate to my pledge drive in any way, go to the landing page www.AllThoseWhoWander.org to find out more about the video game project (I’ve been a game developer for 24 years) I’ll be doing after I’m done with the PCT. The game will be free to all, but if you pledge you will get the “special edition” of the game as a gift!
2020 PCT HIKERS!: If you are actually hiking the PCT in 2020 and want to join this “team” to raise money for the trail and the kids by asking YOUR friends and family to donate, join here or contact Tim at: info (at) allthosewhowander (dot) org!
