Letter of Thanks

We would like to thank all that hiked, donated and or supported our efforts with our first annual World Hike A Mountain Day held in memory of Jenna Agule. The event was a thundering success as over 300 hikers climbed or walked 27 different mountains and trails around the world (20 US and 7 International). At Mt Wachusett 190 hikers enjoyed not only a good hike but food and festivities at Mt Wachusett’s Apple Fest. Check our web site: www.oneangelfoundation.org for pictures and locations of our hikes.

Monies raised this year has gone to support four great causes: i) the completion of  a toy room at the Cotlands, the AIDS orphanage and hospice Jenna worked with in Cape Town, South Africa; (ii) the completion of a new school in Julticalpa, Honduras by Olancho Aid, where Jenna spent parts of two summers, (iii) to a micro loan account at www.kiva.org  to provide loans to local businesses supporting the economy of Julticalpa and (iv) a scholarship to an AB senior.  Contributions this year made a real difference in the lives of children and their families in these communities.
We don’t know how to thank personally everyone enough who participated in this world event enough from hikers, donors, fund-raisers; the folks at Wachusett, our vendors who supported us and all who gave us support in prayer. Their participation has given us the knowledge that we all are part of something special that will grow and honor Jenna today and in the future.
