Between Jun 17–20, 2021, Adam Wolf will be hiking the first of two 2021 ”29029” Everest Challenges. Hike #1 takes place in Sun Valley, Idaho. The newest “29029” location, with climbing to be completed within 36 hours, consists of 15 hikes, 1.6 miles per hike, for a total of 24 miles.
Adam will “up” his game by hiking a second time from August 19–22, 2021 in Snowbasin, Utah, a hike familiar to Adam from the year 2019. One of the most challenging and grueling of all “29029” hikes, Snowbasin plays host to a 36-hour hike totaling 29.9 miles (13 hikes, 2.3 miles per hike).
These extreme hiking challenges will push Adam to his very limits, both physically and mentally. To give these experiences extra meaning, we have created a fundraiser to benefit the Police Athletic League of Jacksonville, or JaxPAL. Let’s support Adam in his quest to help JaxPAL. Kindly press the “DONATE” button to contribute. Your generous cash donation will be greatly appreciated by all involved in this worthwhile endeavor.
We will continue to accept donations through August 31st
Adam is challenging himself to complete two hikes; and, in order to do that, he has been going through a rigorous training program to prepare himself. It is through hard work, dedication, and motivation that he will be able to conquer the challenges.
The JaxPAL program teaches at-risk and underserved children in our community that these above-mentioned admirable characteristics have the power to benefit their own lives and their futures for the better. The Police Athletic League of Jacksonville enriches the lives of children by creating positive relationships between law enforcement officers and the youth of our community through education, athletics, outreach, and teen leadership programs. Since 1972, JaxPAL has dedicated its resources to providing innovative and timely programs that ensure that every child in our city, no matter his or her circumstances, has the chance for a bright and successful future!
It has been an extremely tough year for everyone at JaxPAL. Due to the COVID pandemic, funding dropped considerably. The Eastside Center suffered major damage from a 2020 fire. Reconstruction costs were unexpected, and the much-needed funds to reconstruct the center drained whatever donations were received. During reconstruction, students and staff members were displaced, and overall attendance was at an all-time low.
On a brighter note, the pandemic did create new ways to continue programming, because, as they say, “the show must go on.” Virtual programming was born. The technology needed for this platform costs money, and funds are desperately needed to continue the program. In the meantime, the unstoppable executive director, Mary Bishop, worked tirelessly to keep everyone healthy, safe, and employed throughout the difficulties encountered.
I invite you to follow my incredible adventures via updates posted online on our Wolf Retirement Navigation Facebook page prior to and during my journeys. Together, we can contribute so much to the kids who need us so much. We are a team, you and I, both in the retirement financial world and in the world of these precious children. Teamwork makes the dream work, and my team members and I want to extend a huge “thank you” to you for giving these kids hope, for making an impact and a difference in their young lives at a time that is crucial for developing self-worth and self-esteem.
