Join the Jefferson Township Middle School PTA along with the Jefferson Township Municipal Alliance Committee (JTMAC) and JT Connect for A Trail Guide to a Mindful You: An Inspiring Story of Letting Go, Hiking Over 2,000 Miles and Finding True Happiness via Zoom on Wednesday, April 29 at 2 p.m.

In 2017, Ryan Benz, Mindfulness and Personal Development Coach, hiked the entire Appalachian Trail, all 2,189.8 miles of it. He shares his story to inspire others to live with more passion and purpose. He’ll talk about the hike itself-what it’s like to be stuck in the rain for days, coming face-to-face with rattlesnakes , and running out  of water on a hot summer day in the south!

The program will also highlight the healing powers of nature, and how to use mindfulness to find the resilience to overcome life’s challenges, both on and off the trail.

Join in on Zoom for this event. You can listen to Ryan’s story first hand, see what he saw and feel how he felt! But most importantly, you’ll be inspired to pursue your own dreams and true happiness. You can get to know him at
