"This trek is challenging, unifying and most importantly inspiring — knowing that we, trekkers, are helping to bring missing kids home and to prevent kids at home from being harmed," said Jerry Wetterling.
Every year for 25 years Jerry Wetterling and friends complete a Backpacking Trek Fundraiser. This year they will be hiking through the mountains in beautiful Colorado from July 12th-21st. Their amazingly experienced Trek leader, Bill Simpson, donates his time and expertise to lead our trek and in return he asks all participants to collect pledges, which directly benefit the Center. Each of us pays our own expenses such as food, gas, first aid supplies, etc.
This amazing group has raised over $190,000 for JWRC in their 25 years. Their support is so helpful to the work of JWRC as we work to help families. We can’t say enough wonderful things about the efforts of this group. Their efforts have helped create safer communities, safer families, and safer children. What a powerful legacy!
