Ladies Who Hike (LWH), a local hiking group for women, is partnering with Make-A-Wish Foundation to benefit children in Alabama. On November 14th, they will complete a 27-mile hike on the Pinhoti Trail in Oxford, AL as a Make-A-Wish fundraiser.
“I thought it was a great opportunity benefiting critically ill children in Alabama,” said LWH founder, Brittney Davis. “I signed up on the spot.”
Their goal is to raise $2,500 by December, and you can help! Click here to find out more and make a direct donation of any amount. You can also purchase a candle making kit by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Make-A-Wish fundraiser.
Besides fundraising for a great cause, the goal of LWH is to create a safe space where women can come together and enjoy nature as well as build friendships that last a lifetime. LWH is a paid membership based organization, which allows the group to support some of the local trails and parks within Birmingham.
“With all the cares of everyday life I wanted to create a space that brings women together,” said Brittney Davis, Founder of LWH. “Hiking is always something I enjoyed and I wanted to share that experience with other women who may not feel comfortable hiking alone and may not have anyone to hike with.”
