A Good Weekend with Hike It Up

This last Saturday we cooked for over 100 disabled adults, served lunch, danced, created art, and so much more! 

Then on Sunday, we invited all our hikers to join us in helping local shelters by donating hygiene items. This was the last of our hygiene drive. 

Thanks to everyone for all their support! Join us on social media for updates and invitations.

Sebastian is one of our younger volunteers who helped prep food, mingled, and danced with clients! We love it when children help out!
