Anika and Taylor Hike for GoHawkeye

UPDATE: Thursday, August 16, 2018

Fundraising Hike a Huge Success

“We hike for GoHawkeye!” Taylor and Anika high atop the Wasatch Connection Trail.

 

Anika and Taylor have raised over $6000 for the GoHawkeye Foundation Youth Development Fund. Their single day hike near Telluride, Colorado on Wednesday, August 15 was more than an opportunity to get outdoors for fresh air and a vigorous 8.5-mile hike. The main objective was to support kids with physical disabilities enjoy the benefits of recreating in the outdoors by collecting donations to buy adaptive sports equipment and experiences for individuals. All funds raised directly benefit the grant recipients. The GoHawkeye Foundation has GRANTS available for individuals or organizations seeking outdoor recreation equipment and experiences.

It’s always more fun with a group. (from left to right) Soni, Pam, Taylor, Ani, Tony, and Greg at trails end in Telluride.

“Growing up spending winter and summer holidays in Telluride, I’ve come to love the mountains and mountain sports like hiking, skiing, rock climbing and mountain biking.  When I met Hawkeye and heard that he helps people with disabilities participate in mountain activities I knew I wanted to help and the focus would be on kids.” – Ani Parr

Route Description:

This steep and rocky trail connects the See Forever Trail to the Wasatch Trail #508 that leads to Bear Creek Falls. The Wasatch Connection drops off the back side of Gold Hill. The wildflowers through this area in July are some of the best around. Expect steep switchbacks on the descent into Bear Creek.
