Hike for Water

You hike. We hike
Last week Old Town teamed up with the good lads at Eco Filter to help sponsor a hike up Acatenango Volcano to raise money to take life saving water filters out to rural Guatemalan communities.
More than 20 hikers trekked up to the summit and raised more than $20,000 for the Eco Filtro: One project. 

With the average cost of each filter at roughly $35 you can see that the fund raising will get quite a few water filters into the homes of lots of Guatemalans.  

 This was hike number one of four with Pacaya, Fuego and an overnight return trip on Acatenango on the calendar for the summer.  You can join these future hikes by registering on the Eco Filtro: One site or by stopping by the Old Town Outfitters office on the of 5th ave and 6th Calle in Antigua, Guatemala.

Help Guatemalan families, get out and hike and have lots of fun. 

Black Tie service: Steve Johnson and Brian Zimmer serve up Wine on the summit.
