Nell's Pacific Crest Trail Hike-a-thon to benefit Wild Whatcom

Join us in cheering Nell on as she hikes her way to the Canadian border and raises money for Wild Whatcom!

My time with Wild Whatcom has not only deepened my love for being outdoors (inspiring this hike), but has taught me collaboration, leadership, organization, and about the kind of person I want to be. I made deep connections with myself, the natural world, and other people.

This fundraiser will help give other people the same soul-widening experience I was lucky enough to have. 100% of your donation goes to Wild Whatcom (if paid by check, otherwise all but 8% due to service fees). It will be great to know that every mile I hike on the PCT will help this wonderful organization thrive.
