CPP’s 2nd Annual Hike for Healing

On May 3rd, I participated in Creating Partnerships for Progress’s (CPP) 2nd annual Hike for Healing to raise money for a medical clinic in Cambodia.

CPP is a non-profit organization founded by Angela Wendel, the organizer of the So Cal Explorers photography meetup group, and her family.

Primary Care Center

Primary Care Center

In 2010, they built a playground in Tanzania that included a merry-go-round that generates electricity. In 2011, they partnered with Constru Casa in Antigua, Guatemala to help 4 families build new homes in 2 weeks.

In 2012, they partnered with Raise the Poor to build a library serving 25 communities and over 10,000 people in Cambodia. While there, they discovered children dying of dehydration caused by Hand, Foot & Mouth disease. They were able to provide funds to stop the outbreak and it gave them a purpose for their next project.

In 2014, they will help Raise the Poor build a primary care clinic in the community.

The hike was in Peters Canyon, a regional park located between the cities of Tustin and Orange. You’ll see from some of the photos why it was called a hike-a-thon rather than a walk-a-thon 🙂
