2020 Hike-A-Thon is Going Virtual!
Due to the pandemic and focus on individual outings, the Hike-A-Thon will be run as a virtual event rather than volunteer-led groups.
The 2020 Hike-A-Thon was on route to be the largest, most exciting Hike-A-Thon yet. And it still can be—with your help! We encourage everyone—registered or not—to participate.
How to participate:
- Go outside on July 5th to enjoy an outing on your own. This may be in your own backyard, a local park, or other favorite hike or paddle. If social distancing protocols are still in place, please continue to be safe and choose a destination that is local to you, and avoid crowds. Have a “plan B” ready in case your first choice is already crowded when you arrive.
- Show your Hike-A-Thon pride! Wear a t-shirt or other swag from a past Hike-A-Thon or this year’s. Don’t have any? No problem! Wear whatever makes you happy and comfortable.
- Share a selfie or two on Facebook or Instagram, with the hashtags #LGHikeAThon2020 and #HikeLakeGeorge, and tag us @HikeLakeGeorge and @LakeGeorgeHikeAThon so we can see your awesome pics! Be sure to let us know where you are and who you’re with. Not on social media? No problem! Email pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about this new plan, or about any other aspect of the Hike-A-Thon, please contact Sarah at email@example.com.
As always, we are so grateful to all of you who made a donation with your registration, and to our sponsors. This year their support is especially important as we work through these difficult times. Please help us show our thanks by supporting them, as they have supported us!
