Watch for the newest ADT hikers
Robin Grapa, a 26-year-old survivor of bone marrow disease, and her mother, Patty Laatsch, are on the trail - the American Discovery Trail. The mother and daughter are backpacking across the country on the ADT to raise awareness and money for bone marrow disease research. They started their hike Feb. 4 in Delaware, and should be in the area this week.
The ADT takes hikers from Cripple Creek to Woodland Park, Green Mountain Falls, Colorado Springs, and on to Denver, Crested Butte and Grand Junction. If you want to help the hikers with food, water or a place to stay overnight, contact Jennifer Krammes at 1-800-747-2820 or firstname.lastname@example.org . Check out their journal www.ourhike.com
