We are proud to announce our 2019 Will Hike for Food hike and food drive! Once again we will be collaborating with Walking Pasasdena and collecting food items for donation to Friends in Deed. The hike will take place at Cherry Canyon Park in Glendale. Approximate distance will be 3 miles with some moderate climbing. Parking is free and leashed dogs are welcome.
In the past, NHLA has scheduled Will Hike for Food events on Black Friday to tie-in with the #OptOutside movement. This time, we will be hiking on Saturday, November 30th at 9am, to allow those who have to work on Black Friday the opportunity to join us. Of course, if you have Friday off, you should #OptOutside anyways – and since the Saturday after Thanksgiving is Small Business Saturday, if you decide to reward yourself with a post-hike burger, beer or kale salad, feel free to patronize your favorite local small business.
One last note: this year, in a new twist, the food drive hike will be taking place on BOTH coasts – NHLA founder David Lockeretz will be leading a food drive hike at Minute Man National Historic Park at 12 noon Eastern standard time, concurrent with the west coast hike. This hike will start at the Minute Man National Historic Park visitor center at 250 Great Rd., Lincoln, MA. Donations will go to the Greater Boston Food Bank.
No matter which coast you find yourself on this Thanksgiving weekend, join us to get some exercise, meet some people and give back to the community!
