Camp Wawbeek Counselor Hikes the Appalachian Trail
Serving as a counselor at Easter Seals Camp Wawbeek in 1970 and 1971 made a major impact in the life of Dave Eveland. Things learned and memories created those 43 years ago, stayed with him throughout his life. In his words, “Camp Wawbeek has had that same effect on thousands of campers, staff, and contributors since its founding in 1938. Simply put, a Camp Wawbeek experience provides the opportunity for much joy while at the same time, hope for the future.”
Dave is now retired and still enjoys the outdoors. On March 16 he is starting out to hike 1700 to 2000 miles on the Appalachian Trail and, at the same time, raise funds for Camp Wawbeek. Although his home is in Hawaii, he has been in contact with friends in Wisconsin and has created a blog site at www.wawbeekaloha.blogspot.com where you can follow him on his journey.
Dave invites you to support him in his Appalachian Trail hike with a gift to Easter Seals Wisconsin. Funds raised will go directly to Camp Wawbeek to provide outdoor camping experiences for children and adults. Make a gift of a flat amount or, when the trip is completed, contribute so much per mile hiked. Go to the “Donation Page” to contribute online and specify on the “Gift Recognition” line: Dave Eveland Hike. You may also send your gift to Easter Seals Wisconsin, Attn: Dave Eveland Hike, 101 Nob Hill Rd, Suite 301, Madison, WI 53713.
