Faculty member Jason Harding recently participated in and completed the 50-mile fundraising hike for the organization Project U.S.E. on Saturday, May 6.
Harding said his goal was to complete the 50 miles in 12 to 13 hours. This was his fourth consecutive year doing the hike, and he has completed all three prior attempts.
Harding said the hike began at 3:27 a.m. Saturday morning and he finished around 4:50 p.m. - he ended up the fourth finisher overall with a time of around 13 and a half hours.
"Many thanks and much gratitude to everyone who supported me with donations, logistics, food, and good thoughts. I am planning on doing it again next year," Harding said.
