World Hike A Mountain Day
ONE ANGEL FOUNDATION 10TH ANNUAL WORLD HIKE A MOUNTAIN DAY NOW VIRTUAL!
This year is the 10th Anniversary of World Hike A Mountain Day. For the past 9 years we have celebrated this day at our home mountain: Wachusett Mountain in Princeton Mass. This event combined a beautiful hike up the Mountain with Wachusett’s Apple Fest Weekend which offered games, rides, food, and music. Each year over 200 plus people hiked with us at Wachusett and enjoyed fun, food, and music afterward. As we all know COVID-19 has changed the world we live and how we celebrate the good in the world. With the regulations governing large gatherings, Wachusett has canceled Apple Fest and only has limited access to the mountain this year.
We are asking all the folks that have joined us in the past nine years as well as the hundreds that have joined us around the world hiking, walking, or even biking on mountains, trails, and beaches to join us virtually this year. You can hike, swim, bike, walk or run a trail, mountain, beach, or road near you on the 10th Annual World hike a Mountain Day on October 17th. As these are unusual times if you can’t hike on the 17th hike, bike, swim or walk on any day in October.
Since we will not see you at the Mountain on the 17th we ask that you take some pictures of you and your group and send them to us hopefully with a short paragraph of who are with, where you hiked and when. You can send us the pics and the story to the One Angel Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/OneAngelFoundation) or our e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lastly, as this event is one of our largest annual events that raise monies to support the One Angel Foundation’s mission we need your help.
Donations can be made by going to https://www.aplos.com/aws/give/OneAngelFoundation/general. We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone and we appreciate any donation that you can make this year to support One Angel Foundation’s mission.

The mission of The One Angel Foundation is simple: Bringing Hope & a Smile to Children Worldwide. We aim to achieve this mission by strengthening communities by providing children with critical educational initiatives both in the classroom and in the community. Educating our children through productive and supportive community based activities promotes healthy living, provides emotional support, builds trust, creates social cohesion, builds leaders, and creates strategies and goals to break the cycle of poverty, giving our children in need the greatest gift of hope
Each year we have friends that join us for World Hike a Mountain Day not only around the United States but around the world. We already have folks joining us in California, New York, New Jersey, Vermont Florida, South Carolina, and internationally in Hong Kong, Guatemala, Spain and Honduras.
