The Market at Grelen invites you to participate in its third hiking event to benefit Warrior Expeditions, a non-profit organization helping veterans have a smooth transition from military service back into civilian life. The founder, Sean Gobin, is a UVA Darden grad and was one of the top 10 CNN heroes in 2015!. Check out the website @ https://warriorexpeditions.org/.
The Warrior Hike event is a wonderful experience. Hike the beautiful Grelen Trails for as many miles as you can handle. Pick up tokens along the way and turn them in at the end for a chance to win prizes. The more you hike, the more raffle tickets you can gather and the better your chances of winning.
