CEDA's Hike for Chicagoland

A hiking fundraiser supporting our vision of a thriving Chicagoland

Hiking with Steve

Hiking for the Chicagoland was inspired by our former Board Member, Steve Brunton, as he set out to achieve his goal of the “Triple Crown” hiking Appalachian Trail, Rocky Mountains & Pacific Crest Trail in one Year!  Only a few people have ever accomplished this and no one over the age of 40 has achieved it.
