Wilderness Walk for Warriors is a (not for profit) organization comprised of all volunteers who are dedicated to assisting veterans , service members and or their families; as well as honoring our Maine fallen heroes.
Each year in July, Wilderness Walk for Warriors forms a team that hikes through the 100 Mile Wilderness (Monson to the top of Mt. Katahdin) totalling 120 miles. Team members raise funds through pledges and various fundraising events. In turn, the funds raised are used to directly assist Veterans/Service Members, and or their families.
Wilderness Walk for Warriors is truly a unique organization blending civilians and military for the benefit of those who have served our country. 100% of any money raised by this organization goes directly back , a dollar earned or donated to Wilderness Walk for Warriors is a dollar spent on our Veterans/Service members.
This year’s hike is named "The Flags of Honor". Each team member will be carrying a Flag of Honor attached to their hiking staff. In 2017, we are expecting over two dozen hikers to undertake this extremely difficult endeavor. This is a ten day hike through the most difficult section of the Appalachian trail without any source of re-supply. With the goal to raise money for the great people who have served, and are serving, to protect our freedom and way of life.
This Memorial Day (May 29th) please come out and support our organization so we can continue to support and honor our Veterans and service members by participating in our second annualWilderness Walk for Warriors Memorial Day 5K.
