PCTA launches peer-to-peer fundraising program

Plan on hiking the PCT, getting married or celebrating a special birthday or anniversary this year? Start a PCTA fundraiser and encourage your family and friends to celebrate your special occasion by supporting the trail you love. It’s easy and only takes a few minutes. Plus you could be one of five people to win a pair of LEKI poles.

Philip Pfanner & Julia Frantz fundraising for PCTA through the mYAMAdventure program.

PCTA has partnered with Razoo.com to provide you an easy way to create a PCTA fundraiser. Donations made through Razoo go to support PCTA’s mission to protect, preserve and promote the Pacific Crest Trail. Friends and family supporting your fundraiser with a donation of $25 or more will become PCTA members and receive our member magazine, the PCT Communicator, a one-year subscription to Backpacker magazine (U.S. Resident’s only), a PCT decal and map brochure and 10 percent off items from our online store.


The top five fundraisers who have raised the most money for PCTA by 12:01 a.m. on November 1, 2015 will win a pair of LEKI poles. How cool is that?

By fundraising for the Pacific Crest Trail, you are helping to protect and maintain the trail now and in the future.

Start your fundraiser today.

Shoutout to mYAMAdventure

Thank you to our friends at YAMA Mountain Gear for encouraging their mYAMAdventure hikers to fundraise for PCTA. Each year mYAMAdventure aims to help five hikers pursue their dream of thru-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail by providing a network of mentors and sponsors to help them with their hike as well as gear support. To help ensure that the PCT is preserved and protected, YAMA Mountain Gear has encouraged each hiker to raise at least $2,000 to benefit PCTA.

Since 2014, mYAMAdventure hikers have raised more than $11,000 for PCTA. Thank you to Gen, April, Ashley, Julia, Philip, Robert, Bill, Dan, Helen, Jennifer and Kat for their support. Help these hikers reach their fundraising goals or start your own PCTA fundraiser at http://www.razoo.com/story/Pacific-Crest-Trail-Association.
