BAXTER STATE PARK -Earlier this month, we told you about a former marine, walking from Cadillac to Katahdin all to raise money and awareness for The Summit Project.
Some good news to report this weekend – Greg Johnson made it.
More than 150 miles later, Johnson reached the top of Katahdin in Baxter State Park this weekend with a team of hikers.
The Summit Project honors fallen service members by having hikers carry stones engraved with their names to some of Maine’s tallest peaks.
Johnson told us he’s, “sore, exhausted, and so glad to finally rest”. He also thanked all the people along the way who came to walk with him for part of the journey and provided him food and shelter.
More about how to get involved with honor hikes can be found at The Summit Project’s website.
