MONICA HIKES FOR THE HUNGRY: FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT MEALS ON WHEELS BY DONATING TO MONICA'S FUNDRAISING EFFORTS.
My name is Monica Reinoso. I am a 56-year-old woman whose passion is the mountains. In August I plan to hike a 245 miles stretch of the Pacific Crest Trail. I plan to use my hike in August as a fundraiser for the Homage Meals on Wheels program. I was inspired by my hiking buddy from the Grand Cayman Island, Denise Gower. I met her on Section J of the Trail and she is hiking the PCT as a fundraiser in 2020.
Professionally I’m a nurse at Swedish Edmonds and have taken care of several elderly patients in my career. Many are alone and need help either monetarily, physically, or spiritually.
Did you know that one in eight seniors experience food insecurity? They don’t know where their next meal is going to come from. Many seniors in our communities are home-bound, isolated, and on fixed incomes.
My purpose for this hike is to bring awareness to this forgotten population by using my 245 mile hike on section H and I of The PCT Washington. My goal is to raise $5,000 for Meals on Wheels in Snohomish County. Meals on Wheels is not just about food, but about connection as well.
Please help me make my hike a purposeful one by donating a flat rate or pledge per mile. As little as 25 cents a mile would equal $60!
I sincerely thank you for taking the time to read this and donating!
