Nonprofit seeks hikers for a cause

If someone tells you to go take a hike this September, don’t jump to conclusions. The San Mateo-based CORA nonprofit — Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse — is inviting folks to hoof it for a good cause on its fundraising Take a Hike ’08 excursion.

For three days and two nights, from Sept. 5-7, hikers young and old, novice and seasoned, will explore Pinnacles National Monument near Hollister, with transportation, camping gear and team leaders provided.

Last year, CORA, the only comprehensive domestic-violenceservices agency in San Mateo County — which helps roughly 6,000 people annually — raised more than $100,000 for the cause.

Hikers will also be trained in soliciting donations, so don’t worry. Just worry about those campfire ghost stories instead.

For more information, visit www.corasupport.org or call (888) 321-CORA.
