Support Gus and me on our PCT hike!

Starting this May 2013, Gus and I are beginning at the south end of the Pacific Crest Trail and are planning to hike the full length, 2,663 miles over the course of five months.
Make this trek meaningful…. We recognize the honor of having this experience. We want to make it something that is much bigger and more meaningful than just two people hiking a nationally renowned trail. On this trek we want to create understanding about daily issues in the developing world.
Their blog will not only describe what it is like to live a nomadic hiking lifestyle, but also reflect on living without everyday comforts such as clean water, toilets, easily accessible food and nearby health services.
They hope to put reflection into action through your donations that will directly support rural villages in Bolivia by implementing water, sanitation, health and nutrition programs. Gus and Elena will be attempting to raise a goal amount of $5,326, (2,663 x 2) one dollar for each mile that each of us hike) in order to fund and support projects, families and communities through Etta Projects.

Etta Projects. Attainable. Sustainable. Results. Empowering Bolivian communities to transcend the limitations of poverty.

Etta Projects’ mission is to partner with Bolivian communities to implement sustainable solutions to the challenges of poverty, while educating and inspiring North Americans to act for positive change.
