Countdown to Launch

Launch Day Dawns Tomorrow
(By M. Linkevich)
The magic happens tomorrow morning, and everyone at Hawk Mountain is PROUD to gather in any amount of rain to cheer Todd on his journey!!

If you would like to join, meet at the Drehersville Bridge at 9 am. This is where Route 895 and Hawk Mountain Road meet. Bring signs, or just bring yourself! We suggest you definitely bring an umbrella and raincoat. Due to forecasted rain, I will take some pix and we're going to skip the mountaintop blog, but we'll update later in the morning. Stay tuned for pix of the departure!

Tomorrow's route will cover from Hawk Mountain to Leesport where Todd will stay at the historic Lockhouse. More on that in tomorrow' blog.

FUNDRAISING UPDATE:
$7,496 raised to date! We're getting so close!! If you'd still like to make a donation, click HERE to link to the Hawk Mountain page and make an online gift, or, call us during business hours to make a gift in any amount by credit card. Todd is hoping to reach $10,000 by the time he hits Cape May.

Gifts by Phone:
610-756-6961 between 9 am and 5 pm. Visa, MasterCard and Discover accepted.

Snail mail still works, too:

Hawk Mountain Sanctuary
1700 Hawk Mountain Road

Of course, we're most happy to have your MORAL support, and appreciate all the positive notes we've received and comments on this blog. Keep it up! It will mean the most over the next 15 days.

Hi Todd: Wishing you a safe journey... Do not under-estimate the tides and winds and do not get caught in the saltmarshes! I will be thinking about you!
