Join the Anne Springs Close Greenway in welcoming 2012 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, Jennifer Pharr Davis! Jennifer will be joining us on Saturday, May 15 to share her stories from the trail and to remind us that the outdoors is for all of us.
An expert on “what it takes to keep going,” Jennifer has covered more than 14,000 miles of trails on six different continents. In 2011, she set the overall record on the Appalachian Trail by finishing the 2,185-mile footpath in 46 days – an average of 47 miles per day. She is the first and only woman to hold this title. Jennifer has backpacked over 700 miles pregnant, walked across North Carolina while still nursing her newborn son, and hiked in all fifty states with her two-year-old daughter. She is a proponent of “moving women forward” in every season of life.
