Part of my drive to hike the Appalachian Trail was to raise money to help families with the cost of Christian education. All the money donated for this hike is being directly applied to the scholarship program of the Dayton Christian School System. My heart goes out to the middle income family…to those families that truly desire to enroll in our school but simply cannot afford to do so. I have not drawn any salary from these funds and I personally purchased all my own gear, equipment, food, supplies, and clothes for the thru-hike Every dollar you donated will go toward tuition scholarship for students to attend Dayton Christian/Xenia Christian School.
I was able to raise a little under $40,000 for student scholarships. I hope to have an update on the distribution of the funds and the number of families assisted shortly after school begins in the fall. A big, capital, boldfaced, underlined THANK YOU to all you contributed and made my hike an event to impact Christian Education.
