About the event
Cincinnati Hikes is partnering with No Strings Travel for a virtual hike to raise money for our sister city of Kharkiv in Ukraine. It is 5304 miles to our sister city so we're hiking 5304 steps (2.5 miles) to show our support! We want to raise $5304 to go to grassroots efforts to help the war-struck city with funds for medicine and food delivered daily to the warzone where many poor, sick, and elderly are still stuck.
For this challenge you will be able to register online or in person at Roads, Rivers, and Trails in Milford. You'll receive your exclusive Cincy Hikes Ukraine Sticker beforehand and together for 513 weekend (May 13th), we're going to hike as a city in support of our sister city. We are currently waiting for our stickers to come in so we appreciate your patience!
You can hike one of the scheduled hikes around the city all weekend or hike solo and post the picture of your hike and your sticker to Cincinnati Hikes with #5304. Registration to participate add get your sticker a donation of $25 and all the money goes directly to folks on the ground aiding in Ukraine.
You can find out more about the amazing woman behind the grassroots efforts, Olga Fedchenko, register, and purchase your sticker on the No Strings Travel website. www.NoStringsTravel.com (Please share the website and not just the GoFundMe so we can get everyone's addresses to send you stickers!!)
