Hi blog community, long time no talk! I hope everyone is staying as happy and healthy as possible during this challenging time. My heart is with those who had to cancel thru-hikes this season; I can’t image how difficult that must have been. Please remain optimistic that this too shall pass and know the trail will always be there. I am so grateful for the support everyone showed me on this blog and I am always here to answer any questions about the trail you may have.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I moved to Asheville, NC after finishing the AT. What a wonderful place to live! It’s been inspiring to see how the community has come together to support and uplift its members during this time. I have been working at a nonprofit, Irene Wortham Center, for almost 8 months now – time flies! Irene Wortham Center is a finalist for a branding development contest giveaway with a local business! Kudzu Brands is selecting one nonprofit and one business to each receive a $10,000 brand development package. There are some organizations with wonderful missions in the running! We will have a capital campaign happening in the near future and would greatly benefit from this brand development opportunity and stronger community recognition.
I would really appreciate your vote and it would awesome if you shared the link with your networks. Everyone is allowed to vote once per day through May 29th; if you’re so inclined, set a calendar reminder and vote away (and encourage others to do the same)! We are the top right picture on the voting page. Vote here!
Thank you for your support!
Please be well and continue to get outside safely!
