It’s a Bear!   

Dateline:  August 7, Mt. Tecumseh, New Hampshire

“Woke up at 4:30 this morning to the sound of our tent being ripped to shreds.  I came out to find myself face to face with the biggest black bear I have ever seen….”


Mike McLaughlin, the 2013 recipient of FRC’s Pott Child Advocacy Award and a survivor of child abuse, successfully stared down the bear and placed the banner of Family Resource Center on the peak of Mt. Tecumseh. He has recently completed scaling 48 “Four Thousand Footers” in New Hampshire – you can see our flag at the top of them all in this video:

You can send congratulations to Mike on the Hike4Kids Facebook Page, and look for an article about the completion of his latest adventure in our Fall Newsletter, which will hit your mailboxes later this month. Thank you, Mike, for continuing to help abused kids have a chance for a better life!
