2 WP Grads taking on Colorado Trail for Charity

Anyone In Colorado willing to support and encourage 2 WP grads?

West Point Class of 1970 has a continuing campaign to donate to the National Conference on Ethics in America. Two Grads, (USMA 1970 Cadet Company E2) Whit Wise and Dave Schroeder have decided to hike the Colorado Trail (from June 17 through July 26, 2012), which runs from Waterton Canyon just west of Denver across the mountains and ends in Southwest Colorado at the town of Durango. It is almost 486 miles long and runs as high as 13300 feet in elevation. They also plan to hike to the top of one or two 14000 foot peaks which lie near the trail. 4 Grads  (E-2 members) have pledged up to a dollar per mile for the total miles completed by Whit and Dave, meaning a commitment of up to $1000 if (actually, when) they both complete the hike. Injuries, accidents, illness, weather problems, lack of commitment and possibly wild animals are the only things standing in their way.

Please consider signing this pledge form to contribute to the ongoing USMA 1970 NCEA Fund Raising Campaign:

  1. Hey, there will be before and after pix....and some from the hike itself. Whit is already in shape, but I should be after 6 weeks on the trail. I am representing the well-fed-and-looks-it graduates. Be sure to pledge a little for ethics.
