The Green Mountain Club (GMC) and the Outdoor Gear Exchange will host an inspirational evening with long-distance hiker Jennifer Pharr Davis at Outdoor Gear Exchange on Sunday, June 23 at 7 pm in Burlington. Davis has hiked over 12,000 miles on six continents including Vermont’s Long Trail.
An adventurer and author, Davis will discuss endurance, adventure, faith, and love in her new book, “Call Again.” Davis is well known for hiking the 2,181 mile Appalachian Trail in 46 days – an astounding average of 47 miles per day.
A raffle will take place to support the Green Mountain Club’s Winooski River Footbridge Project. The event will feature a cash bar and food by Big Fatty’s BBQ.
The fee for GMC members is $5 and non-members $8. Tickets are available at Outdoor Gear Exchange, the GMC Visitor Center on Route 100 in Waterbury Center, and online at www.gearx.com. The Outdoor Gear Exchange is located at 37 Church Street in Burlington.
