Grads chart good cause path to New Zealand


SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. - Will Cassidy, a 2013 Slippery Rock University management graduate, and Jesse Solomon, a 2007 special education graduate, have developed a project, Walk4Woodlands, that they hope will help them achieve their goal of walking across New Zealand in 2016.

The pair formed Rootless, a non-profit organization in support of The Woodlands Foundation in suburban Pittsburgh. The Woodlands treats and offers camping experiences for people with disabilities. 

Cassidy and Solomon hope to collect pledges totaling $25,000 for The Woodlands Foundation. The money from their walk would pay for campers to attend The Woodlands programs.
