The Hike for Charity was created in 2007 in an effort to honor Darius Livian’s late mother, Linda Tumblin. Linda was a very special mother and friend to many. She left a lasting impression with her three boys, of the importance of loving one another and helping those in need. This benefit is for Linda “The Angel” Tumblin.
The Hike for Charity is held annually to raise money for local charities. Since it’s beginning, this event has raised over $60,000. All of the proceeds (less expenses) have gone back into our local Monterey County Community. The plan is to increase the size of the event every year. The ultimate goal is to raise millions for local charities.
A note from the founder . . .
I would like to personally THANK YOU!
Last year’s 7th Hike for Charity event on May 10th, 2014 was an amazing success! I would like to personally thank each and every one of you hikers, fundraisers, volunteers and supporters of this event! This annual charity event was created in honor of my dear angel mother, Linda Tumblin, to carry on her legacy of giving.
Now that the hikers and volunteers have rested and the delicious BBQ feast has been cleaned up, we have gone over our tallies again. We are happy to announce the MOST SUCCESSFUL Hike for Charity to date! Drum roll please . . .
