Get on Your Feet to Support Worldwide Healing Hands

Hike 4 Healing on April 29th Will Raise Money for Critical Health Care Missions

Kelseyville, CA

Worldwide Healing Hands, the organization dedicated to eliminating maternal and infant mortality in developing areas of the world, is proud to announce its fourth annual HIKE 4 HEALING event to take place April 29, 2017 from 7:30 a.m.-1p.m.

Participants will hike six miles round-trip over 1,600 feet of elevation on the Wright Summit Trail on Mount Konocti in California’s Lake County. Hikers are asked to donate $25 for their participation and encouraged to get friends and employers to sponsor their “boots on the ground” efforts.

“The annual Hike 4 Healing event was launched four years ago, as a fundraiser for Worldwide Healing Hands’ mission,” says Hike 4 Healing coordinator Anthy O’Brien, a Worldwide Healing Hands board member and supporter. “Each year has brought more supporters who have chosen to dedicate a day to sweat, dirt, and heavy breathing so that mothers and children in far-flung areas can have a chance at life.”
