Hiking Is For the Birds: Creative Fundraising

Rob Anderson hiked 100 km (62 mi) in 20 hours on April 29th to raise more than $4,000 on behalf of the American Bird Conservancy to help support international conservation efforts for the Cerulean Warbler (one of my favorite birds). Read all about it here. That is one incredible feet (pun intended)! Congratulations, Rob! Your accomplishment should serve as an inspiration to all aspiring bird conservationists.

Rob's effort was part of the 34th annual One Day Hike sponsored by the Sierra Club.

Ouch! 62 miles! Can I just buy windmill credits at Whole Foods to offset my carbon footprint instead?

I don't think I could walk 62 miles in 20 hours. Maybe if you paid me the $4,000, then I might be able to get someone else to walk it. For $2000, maybe?
