Hike It Up is a well known organization in our neighborhood. They are doing a wonderful job raising awareness about where help is needed in our community, and make it easy to be part of the solution. I used to volunteer. Now with a more hectic schedule, I donate when I can, and completely trust that my money will be used in the most efficient way possible.

I have donated to and volunteered for this organization. I love that it helps local groups. Hike is passionate, has an incredible amount of energy, is open to suggestions, but a strong leader and a fantastic role model to my children. We are looking forward to contributing to this organization as much as we can for a long time to come.

Hike gives selflessly of himself, his time and his heart. If we all tried a little harder at giving of ourselves like him, I can only imagine how much more beautiful of a world we would create.

Hike It Up provides a rewarding experience for everyone involved: Donations of food and clothing for those in need, great exercise from hiking, and new friendships that evolve while uncovering Los Angeles' hidden hiking secrets - courtesy of the most energetic and benevolent guide, Haig Mkhoian. It's one of the most healthy ways I know that you can help others while simultaneously helping yourself get in shape. What more can you ask for from an organization?! Keep it up, Hike it Up!

I am so glad I found Hike It Up! Not only do you get to go on a great hike but you also get to meet some great people and on top of all that by donating clothing or food you feel amazing about yourself. Such a wonderful feeling just for joining this group. Priceless.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I can't think of a thing. I love everything about this group and Hike is an amazing leader.
