This hike isn't a political statement and should not be used for any political platform!

Wearing green and white, Sandy Hook colors is encouraged.

Two years ago today, 26 innocent lives were taken, by a madman at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. The senseless killing of so many innocent children and teachers shocked the nation. To honor the 26 angels who were taken away that terrible day, we'll do 26 staircases in Silver Lake.

We will also remember the First Responders who responded to the scene.
