Join other young adult cancer survivors for a morning of hiking to the falls overlooks on the Maryland side of Great Falls Park. There is free parking across the street from Old Angler’s Inn (10790 MacArthur Blvd, Potomac, MD 20854. There are multiple parking areas that connect each other and we will meet at the front of the bathrooms at the entrance to the main parking lot, which is right across the street from Old Angler’s Inn.

The hike is suitable for all levels and will end with a bring your own picnic lunch – so pack something delicious to eat (we’ll have a cooler to store it). Plan to wear comfortable walking shoes, athletic pants, and non-cotton layers. Bring plenty of water and a hat and sunglasses for added sun protection, in addition to sunscreen.

The event will run until approximately 12:00pm (we plan to finish the hike around 11:00am and enjoy a picnic lunch for an hour).

This hike is co-hosted by Project Koru.

Project Koru enriches lives through community and the outdoors as a way to move forward beyond cancer. Young adults diagnosed with cancer face a unique set of challenges. With the right support, the weight of these challenges can be mitigated; that’s why we exist!
