My Two-Day Hike to Harpers Ferry

Over the weekend Terry successfully completed his two-day hike beginning at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in Frederick, MD and ended at Harpers Ferry. Terry hiked towards the Appalachain Trail towards Crampton Gap on the first day of his hike and stayed over night at the South Mountain Inn. Early on the second day Terry hiked to Antietam before he finished at Harpers Ferry.

This hike was one of a series to prep him for his six-day, 185-mile trek this November which will follow the C&O Canal Tow Path from Cumberland to Georgetown.

Terry is hiking to raise money for the Sentinels of Freedom, who provide life scholarships to veterans from all branches. His goal is to raise $60,000, the amount needed for one life scholarship.

Below are some pictures of Terrywith the Executive Director of the Museum, George Wunderlich, and of course his hiking partner, his dog Karlos.

Terry also got successful media coverage from myFoxDC. Check out his interview here: http://www.myfoxdc.com/dpp/news/web_links/walking-for-those-who-can%27t-terry-mahoney-091811.
