SPRINGER MOUNTAIN, GEORGIA: A 2K-mile hike Khris started 21 Mar 2013. A promise that made it onto his bucket list but a few years ago, finishing the Appalachian Trail is something he wants to dedicate to the U.S. Armed Forces Heroes. He wants to give back to the USO & the American Red Cross because of the services provided for him during his 26 yrs in the USAF.
ADDENDUM: Day 57 (16 May 2013, Thursday) 17.4 Mi_317.4 Mi/Sams Gap, US 23, I-26

...after hair cut and shaving his head.
It is great Pinoy Airman
is home and recuperating; we will be back in the Appalachian Trail next year.
To all our friends and
families, we need your donations to support the United Service Organizations
(USO) and the American Red Cross (ARC). This is a walk Khris started to
return something back to these two long-serving charitable institutions. They have been supporting and providing
services and programs for the welfare of US Armed Forces personnel even
before WWII. His purpose is to honor his service and the US Armed Forces
heroes, past and present, by getting his friends and families consciously aware
of the USO and the ARC and by providing them moral support.
We are expecting our
friends and families to participate to this worthy cause. Please write us
an e-mail for any questions you may have.
Thanks in advance for
all your donations to the USO and the ARC!
