Hark's Hope on the Horizon Expedition is dedicated to bringing the War on Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, commonly known as A.L.S. or Lou Gherig's disease to a new front by raising public awareness and understanding.
Hark's Hope on the Horizon Expedition will climb all 48 of the highest peaks of New Hampshire's White Mountains in a single, consecutive journey, entirely on foot. The team will cover 239.6 miles over the course of two to three weeks, and will live amongst the mountains for the entirety of the trip. All food and equipment will be carried in packs, and additional supplies will be obtained from preset supply depots.
In addition to attaining the 48 summits, the expedition will carry a second, more crucial mission. Along with food and survival gear, the team will carry all necessary camera equipment to film the expedition in its entirety.
Hark's Hope on the Horizon Expedition will be the central platform of a unique new documentary. Told through the first person account of an expedition team member who has lost a loved one to A.L.S, the documentary will bring viewers a firsthand view of two sets of challenges simultaneously.
The challenges of negotiating the fragile beauty and rugged terrain of the White Mountains will serve as an engaging storyline used to teach the world about the true challenges and hardships faced by A.L.S. victims and their loved ones in dealing with this devastating disease.
Through this film Hark will change the way the world views ALS, increase awareness of this fatal disease and raise funding to provide resources to ALS patients and their families that need assistance in facing a challenge far greater then the White Mountains.
