Ahnu is pleased to announce that it is the new, exclusive footwear sponsor of Team Farsight. Team Farsight, led by Trevor Thomas, is an inspirational team of hikers dedicated to raising public awareness and changing societal expectations for the blind, while simultaneously empowering the blind population to achieve greater heights. Team Farsight is planning a 2010 thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, covering some of the most rugged and remote terrain in the United States over a 2,800 mile span. Fewer people have thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail than have summited Mount Everest.
More extraordinary than the expedition itself is that Team Farsight will be led by Trevor Thomas, the first blind person to complete an unassisted thru-hike of the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail. After losing his sight at the age of 35 to a rare eye disease, Trevor Thomas decided to turn his own disability into a position of advocacy and strength. He pursues his passion of summiting some of the world's tallest peaks, and continues to rock climb, participate in long-distance hiking, and adventure races. Trevor now makes his living as a motivational speaker and as an author of his biography. Visit Team Farsight's blog to learn more.Visit the Site
