Hitting the trail

My friend Chris Hennig, whom I met through World Vision last year at the AID's experience exhibit, is on a new adventure this summer.

He is hiking the Appalachian trail - all 2200 miles of it. At this point in the journey, he's about at the half-way mark on the adventure. Chris is shooting footage throughout this trip to make a documentary called, "The road less traveled." He also is using this opportunity to educate others about poverty and its effect upon those most effected by it - children.

Here is a promo for the documentary.

The original hiking group began with 7 people and now the group is down to 2! They are about 1/2 way complete with their hiking goal. Visit the site, say a prayer for Chris - and soon he will have accomplished his goal of hiking and documenting 2200 miles of outdoor life.

If you'd like to visit the website where he's posting video blogs about the trip, go to 2200 Miles.

What a interesting link! Thank you for sharing, Tara. I want to read about Chris's hike from Day 1, but I don't know if I will have time.
