Appalachian Trail Hikers Cross the Finish Line
WESTPORT, CT - October 2, 2014 - On September 23, 2014, after 171 days and 2,185.3 miles hiking the Appalachian Trail, Lauren Davis and Nate Kramer reached the peak of Mount Katahdin completing their Hoofin' It for Horse and Healing adventure. "The climb up Katahdin was extremely difficult and dangerous. It had snowed earlier and there was a thick layer of ice and frost covering the rocks on the way up, so we were thrilled when we finally reached the top", said Lauren.
Lauren and Nathan set out on their journey of a lifetime on April 6 to hike the Appalachian Trail to make a positive impact on their lives and to contribute to their passion - the welfare of horses and their powerful bond with people. The EQUUS Foundation received nearly $8,000 from donors inspired by their passion.
