THIS FALL, 2,820 HOKIES GOT OUTSIDE, explored, and had fun in the first Hokie Hike. Together, alumni, friends, students, faculty, and staff traveled thou- sands of miles and raised more than $28,000 for Rec Sports at Virginia Tech. More than 500 hike participants shared their journeys using an online leader- board. The board tally indicates that Hokies traveled more than 2,783 miles in locations across the country and as far away as Germany. Hokies hiked in states from Virginia to California—and even Hawaii. Their ventures included walks across campus, strolls on the beach, and miles on trails across Appalachia.
