I see a lot of charity runs and bike rides but not a lot of charity hikes, so here’s one. Plus, since I just did a Woods-to-Waves hike last weekend, I like the scope of this one.
It’s a trek from St. Dorothy’s Rest, an Episcopal camp and retreat center in Camp Meeker, to the Pacific Ocean. Participants can choose whether to go for 2, 12.5 or 14.6 miles. The ending point is the Shell Beach parking lot. Your choice of walking, running or mountain-biking. And dogs are welcome. More than 100 people participated last year in this fundraiser.
The funds raised will benefit the programs of St. Dorothy’s Rest, which, according to their website, “offers a unique summer camp experience to youth in the diocese as well as offering free camp programs for critically ill youth from bay area hospitals.”
Happens on Saturday, May 11, with ($20) registration beginning at 9 a.m. Additional sponsorship options available.
