Welcome to the 2017 Pass to Pass - A Hike on the Pacific Crest Trail for Parkinson's
A hike team of people with Parkinson’s (PWP) and support people will hike the Pacific Crest Trail southbound from Stevens Pass to Snoqualmie Pass in Washington state to raise money for Parkinson’s research and awareness. The dates are August 26-September 2, 2017. It will be pack supported with two wranglers and several mules. Our team of 5 people will average 9.25 miles per day over nine days with approximately 2000 elevation gain per day and a total of 72 miles. For more information and to follow our progress please visit http://www.passtopass.org.
Why are we raising money for Parkinson’s disease? We, the hiker team, want to increase Parkinson’s awareness and show there is hope for future medical advances. We, as hikers living with Parkinson’s, have already benefited greatly from the APDA and by raising money we feel we can give something back. This year our group will be raising funds to support the American Parkinson Disease Association Northwest Chapter and their mission to provide strength in optimism and hope in progress.
Please give whatever you can, but here are some suggestions that tie our effort of 72 miles in nine days to your generous donation.
