More Info

My name is Amanda White and I plan on hiking the Pacific Crest Trail starting March 19, 2018. My goal is to hike the Triple Crown to raise awareness to Veteran Obesity. Statistically, 78% of veterans are obese. I was one of them until I started hiking and changed my eating habits. Now, I am down 60 pounds and plan on continuing to lose weight. How I feel now versus then is hard to describe. I have been training for several months and look forward to tackling another obstacle that puts me that much closer to reaching personal goals and helping others who may feel as helpless as I did at one point in my life. Thank you for taking the time to read about my campaign. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. Please share this campaign and help spread the word.

  • 7.442 Billion People on earth. Only 5132 people have completed the PCT. “The Veterans Obesity charity will be recognized as having a Disabled Female & Air Force Veteran on the PCT.”
  • I plan on hiking “The Triple Crown.” That is over 7900 miles to raise awareness for “Veterans Obesity.” The Triple Crown is the PCT, The Appalachian Trails, and The Continental Divide Trail.
  • Our “Veterans Obesity” program will document and set goals for veterans who participate. If they reach their goal for the year, there will be a drawing for a vacation as a reward.
  • We promise to “Pay It Forward.”
  • I am a Platinum Ambassador to the city of Nashville, TN.
  • We are working to get permits to create a documentary for the The Triple Crown.
  • The Facebook Reach on 1 page is 179,067 and our Post Engagements is 201,389 for one month.
