Hero Hike:    ScienceY is partnering with Southeast Family YMCA Board  Member Zenovia Stephens’ non-profit organization Black Kids Adventures for Hero Hike on November 6th from 9am thru noon at Certain Trail at Blevins Gap Nature Preserve in Huntsville. 

The hike will be led by Will “Akuna” Robinson, a combat veteran who is the first African American man to complete the Triple Crown of Hiking.  Participants are encouraged to bring snack foods for Floyd E. “Tutt” Fann State Veterans Home AND to wear a cape to celebrate the hero in your life!!  This event is inspired by Zenovia’s 9-year old son who wanted to honor veterans with a Hero Hike.
