Last year I set a goal of $100.00 per mile hiked. We raised $15,000.00 dollars which was very much appreciated. We opened the minds of many people and I had a great experience. AS I was walking between 8hrs and 12 hrs per day I had lots of time to pray and think about a more efficient way to contact more people in less time.

Hike Sections:The plan is to have 150 designated starting points along the Appalachian Trail occupied by a combination of 150 individuals or groups who will begin to hike 15 miles of the AT within these allocated 6 days. Thereby having successfully completed a team thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail from Springer Mountain in Georgia all the way to Mt. Katahdyn in Maine.

LOCAL PDF(Parkinson's Disease Foundation) FUNDING: In the event you as an individual or group would like to participate in this PDF/AT thru-hike we will need to know the name of the local PDF group and all of the contact information. We will then be able to forward those funds earned by your group or individual. There is no limit on the number of 15 mile sections per Local PDF. Please have sponsors visit our website with donations marked to your (thru-hiker) name so we can credit your local PDF in your honor as well as the donor.

REGISTRATION: You will have to select the 15 mile section or sections you desire to hike. The $50.00 registration fee is only good for one(1) section However, you can have whatever size group with a single restration.
