Hiking for a Cure - Jonathan Maidment
Money Maker is back and ready to go!
Jonathan Maidment will be returning to the Pacific Crest Trail on April 4th, 2019. This will be Maidment's 3rd time hiking in memory of his grandmother, in honor of his father, and for Alphas everywhere.
Jonathan represented the Foundation in his first hike in 2014 when he hiked and finished the Appalachian Trail. In 2018, Jonathan hiked over 500 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail, but unfortunately his journey was cut short when he was forced to end his hike due to medical issues.
The Pacific Crest Trail is 2,650 miles long and ranges in elevation from just above sea level, at the Oregon Washington border, to 13,153 feet at Forester Pass in the Sierra Nevada. The route passes through 25 national forests and 7 national parks.
Jonathan is ready and more committed to this journey than ever. His passion for his family and the Alpha–1 community is his driving force. His goal: to support our mission of finding a cure for Alpha–1 Antitrypsin Deficiency.
Please support his fundraising efforts by making a contribution below. We cannot be prouder of Jonathan and all of his accomplishments.
Also, please leave Jonathan an encouraging note that he can read on the trail on his Hiking 4 a Cure Facebook Page
