Georgetown Fire Captain, Theresa Snoke, is passionate about hiking and visiting our local trails. She is also passionate about her family, community, 21-year fire service career, and the Firefighters Burn Institute. On Aug 25, 2020, she will be embarking on a week-long journey along the Pacific Crest Trail. She will be accompanied by her friend and hiking partner, El Dorado County resident and local ER RN of 17 years, Anji Manning, wife, mother, and someone who also shares a passion for community and the outdoors. Together they will complete the entire Section K in California. Section K encompasses our beautiful divide and runs the Sierra mountain range between Highway 80 and Highway 50. It is rated as a difficult 61.2 mile, point-to-point trail.
Normally, the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department holds a “Fill the Boot” event each year during the Jeep Expo in Georgetown, CA. This year the event was canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions. Theresa and Anji will be hiking this section with the hope of bringing awareness and donations to this amazing organization. Please consider donating below. You are virtually invited to follow along on their hike through the Sierra Mountains for “Fill the Boot for the Burn Institute!”
Donations are used to improve burn treatment and to fund life-altering burn recovery programs, including Firefighters Kids Camp for young burn survivors and the Little Heroes Preschool Burn Camp.
