Steve's Appalachian Trail

He Made It! Steve Adams, our  Board President, followed his lifelong dream to hike the entire Appalachian Trail.  He started March 22nd and on September 29, 2014 he completed his hike from Georgia to Maine on foot.  You can follow his exciting journey at myappalachiantrial.com (spelled "trial" on purpose). He turned this amazing adventure in to a fundraiser, "The Last 2,000 Miles", and raised $10,000 for Family Partnership Center. Steve is not an experienced hiker, so he worked hard for every dollar.  We appreciate all of his efforts and the donations from generous people who care about Steve and the Center's Mission. Word has it, he may be gearing up for another hike soon.  Stay tuned!
