BIGGER & BETTER, a must do local event!
On Saturday, September 9th, 2017 four local “Iron Men”, Kevin Bingham, Ed Perry, Todd Power and Kelly Schols will lead a group of hikers on a 24-mile trek through the seven lakes in the Chuckanut Mountain Range. An After Party event will be held at Steve and Kelli Perry's house! Recruit your friends and enjoy the camaraderie!
CPI Plumbing and Heating is a proud sponsor of the SLiSH 2017!
The majority of the funds for the center have been raised through a hiking fundraiser called Seven Lakes in Seven Hours. Starting in 2014, Kelly Schols, Ed Perry, Todd Power and Kevin Bingham blazed a trail through the Chuckanut Mountain Range with the goal to hit seven lakes (Lilly, Lizard, Mud, Pine, Cedar, Lost, and Fragrance) within seven hours. They accomplished the 26.37 mile hike within the time limit and gained community support and interest in the event. In 2015 the original four brought along 40 new hikers for the second annual event. Last year 50 total SLISHers participated and we hope to have another record number for this last, celebratory hike.
Through the generosity and enthusiasm of SLISHers and the community, the $100,000 goal for the Heather Schols Cardiac Rehabilitation Center was met last year. This year's hike, taking place on the 5th anniversary of Heather's passing, will be a celebration of the goal we've achieved. Donations collected this year will be placed in a fund to support any future needs of the Cardiac Rehab Center for years to come. We hope you will join us to hike and celebrate!
Tents and trailers are welcome! If you want to set up camp for the night so you don't have to cut the celebration short, there will be plenty of outdoor space at the Perry household for overnight guests.
If you're coming to party with us, but aren't attending the hike, we are asking for a $25 donation for this event. SLISH shirts will be available for purchase at the after party. Please come and help us celebrate this wonderful achievement!
