Announcing our newest quest – 48 in 30!

It’s Thursday and that means a new installment of The Nepal Chronicles. Normally, yes, but EKP is also a hiking site and we’re taking this week to introduce our newest hair-brained hiking project.
In September 2011, Dan will attempt to hike all 48 of New Hampshire’s 4,000-footers; all 48 in 30 days. After trampling around the White Mountains for a decade he decided to put his worn boots to good use, and he’ll be climbing with a cause.
Our efforts will be on behalf of the Holy Cross Family Learning Center of Manchester, a truly wonderful organization that helps refugees and immigrants learn English and create a better life for themselves. We hope our efforts will raise awareness about the needs of these folks, and provide some amount of relief as they settle into their new lives.
With Meena’s logistical and car spot help, we feel this is going to be both doable and exciting. Fundraising has already begun and we’re proud to announce three major business sponsors and many individual sponsors who have stepped up to support our effort.
There are several ways you can help. You can A) subscribe to our new website feed via your email and read along with our journey at www.september48.com B) come hike with Dan and help him raise money for this cause by gathering your own pledges – his schedule will be updated daily C) become a sponsor and pledge to the cause.
Our campaign will be updated in nearly real time through the month of September so supporters can watch as we attempt this challenging campaign.
Our plan is to finish the trekking section of The Nepal Chronicles before September, then turn our attention toward the September 48 website until October. So, for now, please stop over there and check us out, then enjoy the final three chapters of The Nepal Chronicles starting next week.
Once again, our campaign site is www.september48.com
Thanks and we’ll see you on the trails!
