September 9’s hike had another meaning for Patti Keith and her family. “Today was bittersweet as we hiked the MST,” Patti begins. “My husband Norman loved to hike and was hoping to complete the entire trail. Leukemia took him from us in May and it was important to us to do this for him. It was an amazing day and we were proud to be a part of it: 1,175 miles and over 1,000 people!”
