    The Crucible is a self supported endurance hike to raise money for charity. This year's proceeds will benefit the Semper Fi Fund. Semper Fi Fund provides immediate financial assistance and lifetime support to combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. They deliver the resources they need during recovery and transition back to their communities, working to ensure no one is left behind.
    Endurance hiking is defined as any day hike of at least 20 continuous miles along backcountry trails. We chose 22 miles along the Waterloo-Pinckney Trail to represent the average number of veterans lost every day to suicide. The Crucible will be held on September 21, 2019. The hike will begin at Green Lake (18500 N M-52, Chelsea, MI 48118), and will end at Big Portage Lake (11700 Seymour Rd., Grass Lake, MI 49240). There will be 12 hours to complete the hike (8:00am-8:00pm). Aid stations will be at four to six mile intervals where volunteers will be posted with log books. Participants will be given a tee-shirt at the start of the event and will receive a patch if completed within the 12 hour time frame.
