Phoebe Kurtzman, member of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority at Dartmouth College and organizer of the May 25 Velvet Rocks Trail HIKE for Mental Health reports,
It was pouring rain in Hanover today, so we had less hikers then we were expecting! But we had so much fun and it was such a great hike! Here is a picture of some of the hikers at the Velvet Rocks shelter!
Many thanks to hike organizer Phoebe Kurtzman and the women of Kappa Kappa Gamma of Dartmouth College. With your hike you raised $1,314 for mental health research and trail preservation. With more than 30 registered hikers, the hike surpassed its fundraising goal by more than 30%!
Hikers who raised $100 or more will receive a HIKE for Mental Health hiking shirt. Congratulations and thank you to new shirt owners Kendall Kraus, Phoebe Kurtzman, Liberty Buttenwieser, Sarah DeLozier, Jessica Likovich, Rachel Ofori, Rachel Newton-Padin, and Katherine Wheeler.
