Michelle and Blaine are setting out to hike the 800 mile Arizona Trail (AZT). Blaine and Michelle share a love of the AZT. Blaine has expressed wanting to thru-hike it and waiting to adulthood does not seem like an option for him. Since time is of the essence, Michelle has decided to make it happen for him now while she is able to carry him along the trail and while his health is stable enough to make the journey. When this mission is accomplished several things will occur: Blaine will be the youngest person to have completed the AZT, he will be the first person with a threatening illness/disabilities to complete the AZT and Michelle will be the first person to carry a person along the length of the trail. This cannot happen without the community. The hiking community is unlike any other. We rally around each other, we support each other and we uplift one another.
