Zimmerman, an aide to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and a member of the National Association of Social Workers Arizona Chapter, was killed in a mass shooting a year ago that left the congresswoman injured. He was an avid outsdoorsman and his friends thought a hike was an ideal way to honor his memory.

“Gabe was really one of the best people I knew,” state Rep. Katie Hobbs said.
