PATC Welcomes New Staff Member


We're excited to announce our newest staff member, Ben Danforth!

Ben assumed the role of Cabin Coordinator on January 3. He joins us from the office of Congresswoman Lisa McClain (R-MI), and brings with him a BS in Business Administration and Marketing from Central Michigan University. Ben was a 2019 Boston Marathon Qualifier and is also a USA Track & Field Level 1 certified coach. In 2020, he thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail SOBO, starting on July 3 at Katahdin and finishing on October 27 at Springer Mountain. “I had no idea at the time, hiking through the Potomac region, that in a mere two years I’d be working for PATC,” he says. We are so excited to have Ben on board and look forward to working with him on many upcoming initiatives.
