Friends In High Places

Two weeks from today three gentlemen from Atlanta will set out to hike the Appalachian Trail across the Great Smoky Mountains. What is different about this adventure is that they're doing this to raise funds for the Friends of the Smokies organization, which in turn will be used to help fund a variety of projects in the park. I found about this adventure through the FOTS July Newsletter. Here's a synopsis of the adventure from Friends In High Places website:
On September 11, 2016 Doug Peters, Richard Kellogg, and Bill Tinkler will embark on a 10-day, 75-mile backpacking adventure on the Appalachian Trail through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Our goal is to increase awareness for the park, encourage people to visit, and raise funds for the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Friends of the Smokies. We’ve named our adventure-fundraiser “Friends in High Places,” and we want you to be our FRIEND. To find out why, watch this video (below)!
