An appropriate quote for two reasons. One, my “barn family” made it back safe n sound from the American Heart Association’s 2013 Beach Ride. The photos looked amazing and I’m super jealous that this darn back brace kept me from going with them!!! Looks like everyone had a blast tho and I’m thankful everyone and the ponies all made it back home safe and sound and in one piece!
Second, the quote from Christopher Reeve (aka SUPERMAN) is important because I have decided to use my through-hike to raise awareness for a good cause. The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation was established to raise money and fund state-of-the-art research for spinal cord injuries and trama, as well as to support and enrich the lives of those people who have become paralyzed. (Recall, Christopher Reeve was paralyzed from the neck down after a horse back riding accident in his younger years). Be sure to check them out at http://www.christpherreeve.org.
Also, last but not least! I have created a Facebook page for everyone to follow up with Scout and I as we prepare for our journey and keep up to date more easily. Be sure to ‘Like’ our page at :https://www.facebook.com/backpackingforacause
Thank you guys and Happy Hiking!!!
