Project Athena Foundation: I am a Goddess

HEALTH. Technically speaking I am a Goddess, and who doesn’t want to be a goddess! But the title of Goddess is the term used for fundraisers of Project Athena Foundation.

On August 28 I will hike from the South Rim to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon—a 24-mile hike in one day starting at 1 am until we finish.

This year, co-chairs Annika Cail, Katy Duvall and Sara Friedman will face the challenge of beating last year’s $1,115,854.00 achievement, no small feat I might add.
