Missy will be hiking this summer in cooperation with the Legacy Parks Foundation, the City of Knoxville, and Knox County for a series of hikes on local trails. Bring a bottle of water (and a light snack for energy). Thompson Cancer Survival Center will provide sunscreen in case you forget to bring your own. City of Knoxville and Knox County Parks and Recreation officials will also be on the walks.
