50 Miles to Go!

Over the past month, we have been following along with Jon D., Upper School teacher at Logos Academy, as he hikes the Appalachian Trail to raise money for student scholarships. So far, he has hiked over 400 miles across 7 states. He has less than 50 miles to go, and is expecting to finish his hike by the end of this week!

I haven’t showered in a week but life is good.

Normally, if I were to be woken up out of my tent in the middle of the night by a large party I’d be terribly upset, but when it is a large Ecuadorian feast and they want to pile endless amounts of delicious food on a plate for me, I am ecstatic. It was not a dream. Tonight was a good night. Also, today was a zero day for me (zero miles hiked).

 

There is still time to help Jon finish strong! Sponsor him below:
