The Crucible Hike
Imagine a group of 60 people tackling the Pennsylvania Laurel Highlands Trail for a 3-day, 70+ mile extreme hike with a full gear pack – welcome to The Crucible Hike. This 3-day extreme journey through some of Pennsylvania’s most spectacular scenery is not for the faint of heart, but your life won’t be the same after you’ve participated. It’s a journey of passion, determination and personal triumph, as much as it’s an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of local Veterans who are in need of housing and employment services.
