Can You Imagine Losing Both Hands and Feet?

The Story Behind Trisha’s Trek

Who hasn’t had a small cut on their hand or finger or toe and thought nothing of it? That’s exactly what Trisha thought back in January of 2019. But a devastating bacteria infected the cut and made its way into Trisha’s bloodstream. Serious complications arose that ultimately led to the amputation of both of Trisha’s hands and feet.

Now, 18-months later and with a heart to feed the hungry, Trisha, along with her friends and family, invite the community to join her in this inspirational Trek.
