Trekking Through

Appalachian trail complete!

Thanks to Alison for sending this in, they have battled through to complete the Appalachian Trail! Here's what Alison had to say- 

 

"We started at Springer mountain in Georgia on 1st March and hiked 2190 miles to Mount Katahdin in Maine. Crossing 14 different states of America. 169 days a bout of norovirus and a few falls later we did it. Raising money for walking with the wounded!"

 

Well done Alison and Co, sounds like a really tough but amazing trek and all for a good cause!
