World Hike A Mountain Day

World Hike A Mountain Day


This year is the 11th Anniversary of World Hike A Mountain Day. For the past 9 out of 10  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  canceled Apple Fest in 2020 and and we held the event virtually with great success.

We are asking all the folks that have joined us in the past ten 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 11th Annual World hike a Mountain Day on the weekend of October 16th and 17th. As these are unusual times if you can’t hike on the 16-17th  please hike, bike, swim or walk on any day in October.

Since we will not see you at the Mountain on the weekend of October 16-17th 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 ( or our e-mail at

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 the link to our donation page . 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.

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!!!
