I’m hiking 2,650 miles to raise funds for Girl Scouts: Help me help girls become courageous and strong women

Just days ago I took my first footsteps on the Pacific Crest Trail in an effort to raise funds for Girl Scouts. The Pacific Crest Trail begins near the United States-Mexico border, traveling through California, Oregon and Washington, and ends near the Canadian border. If I successfully thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail this year, I will walk for approximately five months, reaching Canada in September.

My journey as a Girl Scout began at age five and continues today. I’ve traveled abroad, sailed across oceans and thrived alone in the wilderness, all using skills I learned as a Girl Scout.

Girl Scouts has given me far more than I can ever hope to give in return. This long-distance hike across America is my attempt to thank an organization and group of women who have given me so much. Please join me in helping more girls become adventurous, courageous and strong women who lead the world today—in the outdoors, business, the arts, politics, science—and into the future.
