New Sponsorship program for hikers to benefit PCTA

Postby YAMA Mountain Gear » Mon Nov 11, 2013 12:20 pm

Just wanted to let you all know about a program I've started up aimed at:
• Helping aspiring thru-hikers through gear assistance and mentorship
• Giving back to our trail stewards
• Inspiring others through story

It's called mYAMAdventure, and this year, we're teaming up with other gear makers to sponsor five PCT thru-hikers. I'm providing shelters (free silnylon or steep discount on cuben) to the participants, and I'm working to arrange as many other gear & food sponsorships as I can. I'm also gathering a group of accomplished long-distance hikers to mentor the participants through the planning process. In return, the hikers are expected to share their stories on social media and to fundraise to benefit the PCTA. Our goal for this first year is to raise $10,000 for them!

There's more info and the application on my website at:

I'm very excited to be doing this and hope many of you will share that excitement!
Cheers,
