Kids Need to Read HIKRZ Jamboree
Presented by GoDaddy.com

This man does not hike!

Until the Kids Need to Read HIKRZ Jamboree, that is! Although it is against his nature, our founder PJ Haarsma has agreed to hike at the Jamboree, so that KNTR can provide more books for kids. He believes he is hiking the flat, one mile Merkle Loop Trail; however, we have other plans for him — the four mile Wind Cave Trail! Yes, up to the top of the mountain for PJ!

Will the longsuffering author make it to Wind Cave?

You can join in the fun by pledging for PJ's trudging. Your encouraging contributions will benefit Kids Need to Read, so let's get PJ away from his writing chair.

Make a pledge for PJ today!
