Announcement

Fundraising for American Lung Association in honor of Gin Goon


CONGRATULATIONS: Seventeen (17) hikers joined the gruelling 26 miles Gin's Hike on April 27, 2019. Among them Four (4) were their first attempt; seven (7) were seniors of 62+. These long distance hikers have been training for the past 3 months to challenge themselves in the strenuous hike to start the fundraising campaign for American Lung Association in honor of Gin Goon.
Gin Goon was the late founder of CMCNY. He was a mountaineering and hiking expert. His patience and selfless personality had motivated many of us to become outdoor enthusiasts. Unfortunately, cancer had developed in his lungs in 2003 and he passed away in October the same year. Although we miss him, his legacy lives on in the organization. We honor him every year with the Gin's Hike and the fundraising to American Lung Association.
Thank you everyone who joined the hikes on 4/27/19 to cheer the 26-mile hikers and made a donation. Your encouragement on the trail and support have helped the Gin's hikers to achieve extraordinary results. The fundraising to American Lung Association in honor of Gin Goon continues through the month of May. Every outdoor activity in May will be dedicated to the campaign. Bring your friends and join us for these exciting events. Donations will best be made by check or money order payable to "AMERICAN LUNG ASSOCIATION". You can bring the donation to the trip leaders on your next hike or mail to CMCNY, PO Box 295, New York, NY 10163. Your contribution is tax deductible to the full extent provided by law. Thank you in advance for your continual support and generous donations.
