We are so excited to be gathering tonight with Chev Dixon to talk about his recently completed Hudson Valley Challenge. From Juneteenth through July 4th, Chev hiked, biked and paddled over 680 miles from the Adirondacks to NYC. Chev will share his story, his inspiration for creating this challenge and where he's going next.
