Ode to a great event
“Hike for Hope”
Rise in the dark, out in the cold
The gun goes off, you’re not old
Up Buttermilk, concurred the first hill
Warming up, I can make it, I will
Surrounded by folks who are here to give
Graced by the beauty of where we all live
Families hike together, youthful and not
No one is alone, community’s what we got
Some try the challenge for the very first time
Others been doing it, since candy bars were a dime
A blue bird day, so magical to see
The sun’s so bright, I yell YIPPY!
The event is about, more then a race
It does not matter, where you place
On top there are cheers, for every single soul
Who cares what your time, you’ve reached your goal
This is what community is all about
Kinship, connection, pancakes, there is no doubt
Hike for Hope, makes my heart feel light
To feel this way, is just so right
If you didn’t come out this year, get out there next
Because as races go, this one is the best!
Thanks, Sharp family.
