Announcement

Fundraising for American Lung Association in honor of Gin Goon

Spring is a time of renewal, rejuvenation and hope. Inspired by the spirit of the season, Chinese Mountain Club of New York (CMCNY) will be launching the 2018 fundraising campaign for American Lung Association (ALA) in honor of our late Co-founder Mr. Gin Goon, who lost his life to lung cancer in 2003. The fundraising event will be kicked off by the Gin's Hike on 04/28/2018, along with two support hikes, medium and short distances. The long distance hikers, who have been training for the Gin's Hike in the last three months, will challenge their hiking skills and physical endurance by trying to complete the treacherous 26 miles in one day. Medium and short distance hikers will have opportunities to render their support and encouragement to the long distance hikers along the way. You can support this fundraising campaign by joining the support hikes and/or making a financial contribution to American Lung Association. The donation will best be made by a check payable to AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION. You can either mail your donation to CMCNY, P.O. Box 295, New York, NY 10163, or simply give it to any of the trip leaders. The donations will be collected at CMCNY activities throughout the month of May and remitted to ALA at the conclusion of this fundraising campaign.
