Tis The Season: A Thru-Hiker’s Gift To One Local Non-Profit

Tis The Season: A Thru-Hiker’s Gift To One Local Non-Profit

Buffalo, NY December 1, 2011- The Belle Center staff and other stakeholders in the community took some time out to celebrate the successful completion of a unique fundraising endeavor at the Dan Cross-Viola: Hiker Event on November 30th, 2011 at Allen Street Hardware.

In March 2011, Dan Cross-Viola contacted The Belle Center from Chicago, IL to propose a fundraiser; Dan is a youth advocate and thru-hiker who planned to hike along the Pacific Crest trail. His goal was to raise a dollar for every mile that he hiked and donate all proceeds to the Center for its programs and services.

Dan accomplished his fundraising mission garnering half of his desired amount before even beginning the hike. Ultimately, he went on to exceed his fundraising goal as he hiked and raised $2,675 for the organization.
