We stand together to raise awareness and honor the formidable journey parents worldwide endure in their quest to secure surgical care for their children, battling relentless barriers or navigating insurance eligibility and denials.
When: October 7, 2023, 8am - 11am
Location: Peter Strauss Ranch, Agoura Hills, CA
We extend our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support. This year, your contributions have been pivotal in expanding our programs and providing essential aid to countless children in need. We want to thank you. Walk with us and whether you can join us in person or show your support from afar, we deeply appreciate you.
Hike 2 Mend is an opportunity for our growing community to unite and amplify our cause in support of giving children everywhere the opportunity to access the care they need.
For those willing to take on the symbolic weight of a child's journey, we invite you to bring rice and canned goods, to be donated to the West Valley Food Pantry after the event.
Carry the Load: Participants can choose to carry 5 lb to 20 lb backpacks filled with nonperishables, representing the weight of a child a parent must carry when seeking medical care for their child. Together, we raise awareness for the half-billion underserved children worldwide in need of surgical intervention.
Join us on this beautiful path of compassion and change. Together, we can make a profound impact on the lives of children in need.
We are immensely grateful for your support and eagerly anticipate your involvement. See you on October 7th!
