About Climb4Recovery_TJ

Hi, my name is TJ and I live in Rochester, NH. Next April, I will be traveling down to Springer Mountain, Georgia to begin my 5 month hike north towards Mount Katahdin, Maine. For those of you that may not know, this is the Appalachian Trail.

During my hike, I plan to stop in various towns to give a message of hope to whomever wants to listen and possibly gain a few members in the recovery nation as well?

For those who know me personally, know that I’m not one to ask for money for funding. This however, is a little more extreme than I can afford. I’m asking to reach a $5000 goal which is around half of the funding that will be needed to complete this adventure for recovery!

Here’s a little background:

I’ve been wanting to hike the AT for well over 10 years now but was never in a position to be able to do it. Well, as luck turns out and with some support from y’all, I may have found a way?

When I rock out the trail, I will be hiking with a purpose. That purpose is to show my fellow recovery warriors, as well as those struggling with addiction, that you can have fun, make dreams come true and also take pride in achieving your goals, without the use of drugs or alcohol.

I am a veteran that has been in recovery since April 10th 2016 and when I set out on the trail, on April 10th 2020, I will celebrate 4 years sober as well as celebrate my 40th birthday later in the month!

I’ll be documenting my entire thru hike of the AT on Facebook Live, Instagram, YouTube and The Trek which are yet to be established.

The money that WE are able to raise through this fundraiser, as well as any others done between now and the hike, will go solely towards getting gear for my hike. Any leftover funds will be donated to various not for profit recovery homes along the trail.

Thank you for taking the time to read a little about my story and I look forward to hearing back from you soon. Remember, ever dime counts so please give what you can. Even if you aren’t able to donate, please share this out so others may be able to participate.
