World Hike A Mountain Day


This year is the 12th Anniversary of World Hike A Mountain Day. Up until the onset of the pandemic and its aftermath we celebrated World hike a Mountain 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 the fun, food, and music afterward.  As we all know COVID-19 has changed the world we live in and how we celebrate the good in the world. So this year again we are celebrating World Hike a Mountain Day virtually.

We are asking all the folks that have joined us in the past eleven 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 again virtually this year. You can hike, swim, bike, walk or run a trail, mountain, beach, or road near you for the 112th Annual World Hike a Mountain Day weekend of  October 15-16, 2022.

As these are unusual times if you can’t hike on the 15-16th please hike, bike, swim or walk on any day in October and let us know!.

Since we will not see you in person on October 15-16th we ask that you take some pictures of yourself 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 ( or our e-mail at

If you can’t join us please feel free to make a donation today

If you are going to hike or walk somewhere around the world please let us know by sending us an e-mail at!

Your Friends at the One Angel Foundation

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. Please join us again virtually in spirit by hiking, walking, or biking a mountain, trail or beach near you. Please let us know where you hiked with pictures and a story!

Monies raised by this event will be used to further One Angel’s mission of supporting educational opportunities for children in need.

Thank you!!!
