Welcome to Walk Hard 2014
Walk Hard began in 2010. The idea originated when Kyle Crabtree and Austin Bivins saw a man, dressed as Superman, walking down the highway carrying an American flag. This sparked a curiosity and a desire to do something equally unique and challenging. The two set out to plan a hike from Troy to Panama City and began recruiting more participants.
When the proposal came to Edward Fieder, a mutual friend of Bivins and Crabtree, they were surprised to learn that despite being physically fit, he couldn’t make the trip due to Type 1 diabetes.
It was at this point that Bivins, Crabtree, and third participant Jacob Laan decided to use their hike to raise awareness and funds for the diabetic community. The group decided to raise money specifically to benefit Camp Seale Harris, a summer camp for children with diabetes that takes place at the facilities of Camp ASCCA (The Alabama Special Camp for Children and Adults). Walk Hard 2010 raised almost $3000 for Camp Seale Harris.
With Walk Hard 2014, ATΩ has decided to donate all funds to support to the Wounded Warrior Project.
