How Hike-a-Thoners Are Like Unicorns
Three ways that WTA's Hike-a-Thoners are just like unicorns (and why it's really, really good luck to support them.)
1. They are a force for good
All August long, they toil to the tops of mountains, take friends and family members hiking, spread the word about Washington's wild places, and collect pledges to protect and maintain trails.
2. If you see one in the wild, it's good luck
More than 200 Hike-a-Thoners are out on urban and backcountry trails all over Washington. If you spot one, it's really, really good luck. This is especially true if you take the time to donate to their campaign.
Hint: You don't have to spot one in the backcountry to donate to their campaign. Pick a Hike-a-Thoner or a team, and support one today!
3. They have super-human strength
Whether they are racking up hundreds of miles hiking all August, going for mad elevation gain figures or demonstrating incredible strength of spirit, these tenacious individuals are a force to be reckoned with. Just. Like. Unicorns.
