In just 5 days, we embark on another extraordinary journey to support children in need of life-changing surgical care. Hike 2 Mend has always been a symbol of unity, compassion, and collective action, and we invite you to walk with us once more.
Date: October 7, 2023
Time: 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Location: Peter Strauss Ranch, Agoura Hills, CA
Hike 2 Mend is not just an event; it's an opportunity for our growing community to unite and amplify our cause, ensuring children everywhere can access the care they need.
As a symbol of the challenges parents face, we invite you to Carry the Load: For those willing to take on the symbolic weight of a child's journey, participants can choose to carry backpacks weighing between 5 lbs to 20 lbs, filled with rice. This weight represents the burden parents bear when seeking medical care for their children, raising awareness for the half-billion underserved children worldwide in need of surgical intervention. The rice and other essential supplies will be donated to the West Valley Food Pantry after the event.
Your unwavering support this year has been nothing short of remarkable, enabling us to expand our programs and mend 14 Kids in Tacloban City, Philippines and send another team out this week to mend hearts in Tanzania. We want to express our heartfelt gratitude and invite you to join us on this meaningful hike.
This Saturday, October 7, 2023, join us on this beautiful path of compassion and change.
See you on the trail!
