Happy Hour to Support Jacquie's Run Across Haiti/Haitian Charity
Come help support Jacquie's Run Across Haiti AND her 30th birthday (a couple weeks early)! A portion of the proceeds from the happy hour will be put toward her fundraising campaign. Jacquies Run Across Haiti Crowdrise page (https://www.crowdrise.com/jacquies-run-across-haiti-for-good-dignified-jobs) Location: The Smith 55 3rd Ave, New York, New York --------- Jacquie is a Hiking & Nature regular who's also an amazing ulta-marathon runner and nurse who's volunteered in Haiti. She's doing the 2018 Run Across Haiti February 16th, 2018. Over the past three years, the run has collectively raised $450k for our work in preparing and placing families in Haiti into good, dignified jobs, including jobs on the Run. The goal here is to show that Haiti is not to be feared or to be pitied and to raise funds to end poverty in Menelas, our community, through dignified jobs. 40 runners will cover over 200 miles across the entire country from north to south over the course of 8 days. Over mountain ranges and through the urban core, and in the process show you Haiti through the team's perspectives.

What we're about

Public Group

Join us for a full range of outdoor activities all year round! From day hikes to 20+ mile challenges, from train-accessible local hikes to camping around the northeast, from lazy summer lake-swimming to winter snowshoeing, ice climbing, and skiing, we do it all!

Most local trips are accessible via public transportation and we organize car pools when they are not.

These are not guided trips - these are social events.Remember that you are responsible for your own safety. Stay within your skill, fitness, and experience level.

• Have a profile photo showing your face. This is required so your organizers can remember who's who. And answer all the profile questions so we know a little about you and what kind of events we should plan

• Most day hikes are suitable for any fit individual with some prior hiking experience.

• Everyone should be comfortable hiking alone and be prepared to do so (with a map and an understanding of the route). We make an effort to stay together as a group, but sometimes the group does need to split up.

• If you're new to a particular activity or moving up a level, please contact the event organizer. It is often possible to accommodate less experienced members, but not always.

If you do not have any hiking experience at all, please hike with a professional guide service a few times.
