Mark your calendars for September 22, 2012 for the Shenandoah Scramble.
Join over 100 hikers in this one-day hike-a-palooza to support the Shenandoah National Park Trust! Pledge or raise $100 or more and choose from one of 6 great hikes in the park. SNPT will feed you breakfast and present you with a one-of-a-kind Shenandoah Scramble hiking shirt. Then you, your group and your trail guide will head to the park for your day of fun. Hike with your family. Hike with your friends. Just hike! SNPT will award prizes for most money raised; awesome gear from REI, The North Face and other outdoor outfitters. Space is limited and reservations are required. Find out more by contacting Shenandoah National Park Trust at (434) 293-2728 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is really a great idea. The Friends of the Smokies and the Great Smoky Mountains Association should look into doing something similar in the Smokies. They could also do a bike ride in Cades Cove on a Saturday morning in order to to raise funds through the cycling community.
