2nd Annual Hero Hike

Local News

Dozens of people showed their support for the military during the 2nd Annual Hero Hike on Saturday morning.

More than 70 hikers walked the 7.3 mile-stretch of the Ghost Town Trail from Nanty-Glo to Ebensburg Saturday morning to show support for members of the military and to foster relationships between veterans and civilians.

“Just a small – get out and do something- just to show appreciation. One of those small way we can say, ‘Thank you,” said John Geiser, one of the hikers.

In 2017, the hike raised about $2,000 for Veteran Community Initiatives. This year, they raised more than $2,200.
