Blister Sisters Hike 100

$4,105 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 46 people in 4 months


Two Lyons adventurers, Erica Ellingson and Sarah Catchpole, are hiking on the English Coast-to-Coast Trail as fund-raiser for the Lyons Library!

Their walking  goal is 100 miles, from the little town of Kirkby Stephen  to Robin Hood's Bay on the  North Sea. Along the way they've climbed hills, squished through bogs, been pummeled by rain and wind. They've navigated over moors and fields,  eaten both wonderful and apalling food, and quaffed happy glasses of cider in pubs at the end of the day.

And all along this trek they' ve been warmed and supported every step by Lyons Library supporters who have donated at this site.  All contributions go to the library, where they will be used to buy special furniture and equipment for the children's space.  The trekkers are closing in on their 100 mile goal; help them meet their fund-raising goal with GOFUND ME!

 You can follow their progress through The Lyons Recorder, their Facebook page Blister Sisters and Lyons Happenings, and their travel blog:    http://lyonsblistersisters.blogspot.com
