If you can dream it, you can do it!! Walt Disney

My name is Joe Reinbolt and I have been an avid hiker and outdoor enthusiast for over 30 years.  While Lake Tahoe is my home base, I have hiked the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Yosemite National Park extensively.  

 

My Mission

I worked in Walt Disney World from 1999-2004 where the only mountains I saw were Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, and Thunder Mountain. While working as a pool bartender in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, I met and interacted with many amazing Make-A-Wish children.  Their amazing strength and courage continue to inspire me every single day.  

 Mickey Mouse accompanies me on every hike to remind me of all the  special Make-A-Wish Kids all around the world!  Never take a single day for granted and never be petty.  Live life to the fullest and share the love of nature!!

In the Fall of 2014, I was honored to serve as a hiking guide for a Make-A-Wish family.  The experience profoundly affected me and my desire to promote the Make-A-Wish cause.  So the idea of the 1000 Mile Challenge was born.  Finally, I could combine all of my life's passions- hiking, nature photography, technology and promoting children's charities, into a single event- The National 1000 Mile Challenge .  I donate 50% of all net registration fees to Make-A-Wish Northeastern California/ Northern Nevada.  

 I wish to send a Make-A-Wish family to Walt Disney World!!

Keep close to Nature’s heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
