Come out for a special charity hike to raise money for DC Books to Prisoners. The event will consist of a short hike, an Indian buffet lunch, and a trip to a used bookstore.
Meet at 11 a.m. just outside the Grosvenor/Strathmore Metro Station on the Red Line, Rockville/North Bethesda, MD. Note that Metro runs less frequently on the weekend and is often delayed due to track work.
We will walk from the metro to Rock Creek Trail. Total distance will be about 5 miles. This is a point-to-point hike. We'll head north on the trail and end up at Mem-Sahib Indian Restaurant where we'll indulge in an all-we-can-scarf buffet, suitable for both herbivores and carnivores. After eating, we will adjourn nearby to the Friends of the Montgomery County Library Bookstore, a book lover's paradise. Finally, we will walk to White Flint Metro Station. If you drive, you can take the metro one stop south (or you can redo the hike in reverse on your own). I predict that we will be done around 3:15.
DC Books to Prisoners is the the beneficiary of this hike. Most funds raised by this charity are used for postage costs. Hundreds of requests pour in each month; the biggest limiting factor is postage money. The suggested donation amount is what you can afford; each package costs around $4 to mail on average.
**Please bring a donation for DC Books to Prisoners, your SmartTrip card, cash for lunch($12 + tax, tip, extras) and the bookstore, and water. If you would like to donate online to the charity for tax or other purposes, that is fine.
