: Waterfall Glen
S Cass Ave & Northgate Rd
Darien, IL 60561
Fundraiser for Search and Rescue teams of Larimer County. This is the team that I hiked with while searching for James Nelson where he was sighted 4 times. These are the most honorable people I have met. Lets hike 10 miles and please give a donation of $10.00 to raise money for these teams.
This is the first of two planned fund raisers to help fund the ongoing search for Leader James Nelson who was last sighted on Oct. 3rd. The second event will be to raise money for Vail Search and rescue Group.
I will share the humbling experience of what the search effort was like. I will explain after the hike questions asked of me by so many: Why I was assigned to the search teams, what the experience was like, why you should not go, what the search area was and how well they were covered by men, helicopters and dogs AND What can be done at this time.
This is a non profit trip. It will not be through paypal so only the search teams will get the revenue they need. Again these are highly trained volunteers who leave there families and spend money for gas, food and lodging to meet and search for James under what can only be described as a intense military operation by former military people who know what they are doing.
Lets be one big family here.
You can bring your dog. We can plan on lunch after if interested. This is not about one meetup group or another... this is about a leader and the SAR Groups looking for him!
