Hiking to Save Lives


Dear family, friends and colleagues,


Welcome to my Team in Training fundraising home page!


I am training to hike into the Grand Canyon on May 9 to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, a non-profit health organization dedicated to finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma.


To prepare for the Grand Cayon, I will be training each week with a group of hikers, including my friend Kelly. To get ready, we'll be hiking some of the most difficult trails in Arizona, including Camelback Mountain, Piestewa Peak, and Humphreys Peak in Flagstaff == the highest point in the state! Kelly and I have started a blog to chronicle our experiences, which you can check out here.


The hike will be challenging, but I am doing it for a vitally important cause - cancer research. Cancer has touched all of our lives in some way, and I truly believe that once we find a cure for one type of cancer, cures for the rest will follow.


Everyone on my team is raising funds to help stop these diseases from taking more lives. I have committed to raise $2,900 to support the cause, and would love your support.


Your generous donation is fully tax deductible, and more than 75 percent of the $2,900 I raise will go directly toward research and patient services. If I surpass my goal of $2,900, 100 percent of those donations will go to research and patient services.


I will keep a running list of the hikes I've done, so you can all see my progress:


*Jan. 26: Thunderbird Conservation Park

*Jan. 31: Shaw Butte (4.1 miles)

*Feb. 14: Phoenix Mountain Preserve, Trail #100

*Feb. 15: Thunderbird Conservation Park

*Feb. 21: North Mountain, Trail #44

*Feb. 22: Piestewa Peak circumference trail, #302

*March 1: Lookout Mountain, summit trail

*March 2: Thunderbird Conservation Park

*March 8: Railroad Trail

*March 22: Garfield Park Reservation

*March 26: Thunderbird Conservation Park

*March 28: Shaw Butte

*March 29: South Mountain, Alta Trail

*April 5: Phoenix Mountain Preserve, Trail #100

*April 23: Lookout Mountain, circumference trail

*April 26: Thunderbird Conservation Park

*May 2: Piestewa Peak

*May 3: South Mountain, Holbert Trail


Be sure to check back here frequently for updates! Thank you for your support!

    "Meghan , thank for doing this, I first did the rim to rim hike when I was 14, in boy scouts. Make sure you boots are well broken in, and have a great time. "
