In July 2014, The Wilderness Walk for Warriors partnered with The Summit Project to complete a tribute trek in honor of Maine’s fallen.
Congratulations to Chris Robinson and his hiking team for completing 114 miles of the Appalachian Trail as part of The Summit Project living memorial. Chris and his team coordinated with TSP very early on, trained for months, and summited Katahdin last week while carrying seven TSP memorial stones and honoring our heroes. Their trip reports and personal reflections are forthcoming, but right now, we wish him and the entire team a sincere congratulations for completing a very physically and mentally challenging event (which included the toughest section of the AT – the 100 mile wilderness) — all to honor the fallen while challenging the living. They carried the stones for the hike but will carry their stories for a lifetime. Great work Chris. Thanks for being part of the living memorial. Thanks for sharing TSP with so many others along the trail. MHANF.
