Anika Parr was inspired by Hawkeye’s 135 mile hike of the San Juan loop this summer and once again began a fundraising campaign for the GoHawkeye Foundation. This year she hiked & biked fifty miles in and around Telluride, Colorado during her vacation. She asked for donations per mile and was able to raise over $1500 for the GoHawkeye Foundation with funds going towards helping kids with disabilities experience the outdoors. This was a much more challenging endeavor than her previous twenty mile hike in 2015. She said the last few miles were tough to complete in the time she had allotted. Last year Anika and friend Helena teamed up to hike and raise money to benefit the special olympic ski team organized and coached by the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program.
