Rain didn’t dampen the spirits of those participating the inaugural Volksmarch on Saturday, Feb. 8 at Hunting Island State Park. In fact, 82 people showed up to walk the north trail and raised $1,120 for Discover Carolina, according the Richard Geier, president of Friends of
Hunting Island State Park.
“A lot of people saw a lot of the park.” Geier said. “They got to see a very unique and beautiful part of the park normally not seen by the general public” he said.
The Volksmarch and annual Pelican Plunge are the prime fundraisers for the Discover Carolina Program which funds school field trips to the popular barrier island.
