8 Reasons To Register For PLC’s first Hike-A-Thon

Hike-A-Thon is Piedmont Land Conservancy’s new effort to raise funds and awareness for local land conservation. Thinking about registering? Not quite sure? Here are 8 reasons to click that “Register” button today! 

  1. It will be fun! Fresh air and like-minded folks making a difference. Getting outside for a hike always feels great. When you combine a normal hike with a good cause and good people…well, it just does not get any better.
  2. It will be good for you. Experts agree, time spent in nature is good for your mind, body, and soul. Burn some holiday calories, shake out the cobwebs and feel the post-holiday stress melt away.  It’s better than a headache on the couch, right?
  3. It’s flexible. Can’t make it on January 1st? Going to be out of town? No problem! Plan to hike another day or at another location. Just let us know! In fact, we already have one hiker committed to hiking in Oregon!
  4. You will be doing something good for our community.  North Carolina is growing fast. That’s good, but we want to make sure there is a still a place for hiking trails, important wildlife, protected clean water sources and places to connect with nature. When you participate in HIke-A-Thon you are ensuring North Carolina stays the wonderful place it already is.
  5. You will be living out your values.  Are you someone who lets others do the work? Sits back and says “Meh, someone else will take care of this problem…”? No? We didn’t think so. If you believe one person can make an impact…if you KNOW that your actions can bring about positive changes…hike on, friend.
  6. You will set the tone for 2017.  Picture this: it’s just past noon on the first day of the year. While some folks are just crawling out of bed you will have breathed the fresh air, stretched your legs and helped your local land conservancy protect the nature of the Piedmont. Imagine where 2017 will go with that kind of start!
  7. Free hat!  We have a brand new hat with the Hike-A-Thon logo waiting for you. Claim it!
  8. We need you.  It all comes down to this: Piedmont Land Conservancy has the opportunity to take on more great land protection projects in 2017. To do that we need community support and awareness. The goal of Hike-A-Thon is to let people know what PLC does, provide a new way for citizens to participate in our work and put some funds in the bank so we are prepared for the next project. We can’t do it alone. By giving us the gift of your time, dedication and energy we can expand our reach and protect more family farms, more green spaces, more clean water sources and more places to connect with nature. PLC is all about partnerships. We would be honored to have yours.
