Become a sponsor of Prime Time for Women.

We are back and bigger and better than ever! This year Prime Time for Women will honor Grandma Gatewood’s legacy with a series of hikes, designed for different ability levels. 

Register for the hike of your choice and help make our dream come true! Through this event, Prime Time for Women hopes to connect and inspire women and increase awareness of domestic violence.

Who is Grandma Gatewood?

Grandma Gatewood was the first woman to solo thru-hike the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine, and she accomplished this feat at 67 years of age!  She was a survivor of severe domestic violence that left her hospitalized many times. When she was discouraged from hiking the 2,091 miles trail, she did it anyway!  She was not limited by the perceptions of others.  Grandma Gatewood embraced challenges as adventures, and pursued possibilities rather than probabilities.

Literally and figuratively, you can follow in the footsteps of this amazing woman! Enjoy the beauty of nature and the brilliant autumn foliage as you connect with other women who, like Grandma Gatewood, believe in their power to make dreams come true!
