Welcome to my Hike for Discovery home page.
Hike For Discovery is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's adventure fundraising program that prepares people to experience a natural wonder in a special way.
While I'm training, I'm raising funds to help the Society cure leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. More than 712,000 Americans are battling these blood cancers. Your support of my participation in Hike For Discovery will help bring them hope and support.

3/15/08 - My First Traning Hike
Since I signed up for Hike for Discovery Late, I just went on my first training hike. We had about 15-20 people come, and we hiked on the Black River Trail in Chester, NJ. It was a beautiful hike. We hiked through a dense pine forest, a very rocky trail, over a couple rivers, and we must of gone up and down the mountain several times. We hiked a total of 6.7 miles with an elevation of 400 feet. I had some blisters and sore legs the next day, but it was worth it.
3/22/08 - My Second Training Hike
Well, I woke up to late and missed the hike. So Dan and I went for a hike of our own to Jenny Jump State Park in northern NJ. We hiked 7.6 miles with an elavation of 400+ft. If you live in the area I highly recommend it. There are beautiful views of the Delaware Water Gap and an entire ridge of caves that are close enough to see things moving in them (black bears?).
