At this time, the PHP would like to thank everyone for their continued support not only by showing up to the hikes …and experiencing nature and fitness for yourself, but also your wonderful support towards our “Green Boot.” Your contributions are an added assurance that our group will be able to be prepared for certain challenges that may come our way while hiking, thus creating a safe and fun hiking environment.
