Nathan Henthorn will walk the 2,600 mile Pacific Crest Trail beginning March 18, 2018 at the southern tip near San Diego, CA, and ending at the northern tip at the Canadian border.
Along the way, he plans to raise awareness for the plight of homeless and runaway youth, and raise money for Project Oz to help those youth. All funds donated through this page will go directly to Project Oz.
Here is why Nathan is embarking on this walk:
I’m 19 years old, and have always loved the outdoors while camping, hiking, and backpacking.
Alex and I have been close friends since 7th grade. After my mom passed, he was there for me when I felt most alone. My church has also been a big inspiration.
During our sophomore year, when Alex shared his idea for this walk, I immediately wanted to join him. We spent the next three years preparing, which included my losing 60 lbs.
I wish I’d known about Project Oz when one of my high school friends was kicked out of his home and had nowhere to stay but in my garage. I want to do all I can to help homeless youth in his position.
