My name is Gabriel Blanchet and I will be taking the Spring term off from my studies at MIT and attempting to hike the full Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine. I anticipate starting my journey sometime around February 25th and hiking for approximately 3 months up to Mt. Katahdin in Maine. The trail is about 2,165 miles long. Here’s where you come in! I am accepting donations on a per-mile basis. Half of the proceeds will go to JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) and the other half will benefit the charity/non-profit of the highest giver’s choice. To learn more about my journey for JDRF, please visit my blog website. Thank you!!
