Summit for a Cause: LisaSupport Lisa Kelley in her hike up Mt. Katahdin!
Hiker: Lisa Kelley
I am the mom of two great teenagers, fairly recently divorced, and have many good friends and family members. I have a Master’s degree in Community Health Nursing, currently work in this field and have been an RN since 1995. I love being outdoors, am an avid gardener and a birder. I love to be outside in Maine doing all kinds of things in all seasons. I love to hike and have done a bunch of backpacking, but not for quite some time. I exercise regularly, including yoga, strength training, cardio, and lots of walking for many miles!
What excites me about this hike
I have wanted to climb Mt Katahdin for a long time, but haven’t found the right circumstances in which to do it. I am excited for this hike for the physical and mental challenges, doing it with a diverse group, with a competent leader at the helm. I love meeting interesting people who may not be people I would meet any other way. I look forward to the breathtaking views, the changes in flora and terrain, being dog-tired at the end and how eating food on the trail always tastes better! Looking forward to “shaking the snowglobe”- doing something out of the normal routine!
Favorite trail snack
Gorp/nuts, packets of tuna, bagels and avocado.
Don’t stop at $1,500!
It’s all about supporting nursing students in our community. The hiker who raises the most donations gets a prize!
