Miles for Mountains is a project I helped co-create with Will Harlan to raise public awareness about the issue of mountaintop removal mining.
"Be a part of a million mile march to end mountaintop removal.
Dedicate your next hike, walk, or run to ending mountaintop removal. It can be on the treadmill or the trail…a short hike with some friends or a long backpacking trip…a jog around the block or an ultra marathon. Our goal is to raise one million miles from hikers, runners, and walkers who love mountains and want to protect them from mountaintop removal mining."
The website is still in progress, but the cause is alive and well. Donate your miles (or watch the video) here: http://milesformountains.wordpress.com/
