BENEFITING: BEADS OF COURAGE

EVENT DATE: May 08, 2013

THE STORY:

Have you ever had an over whelming desire or passion in your heart to want to do something with your life that is bigger than yourself? To push yourself beyond what you thought you were capable of?

I have traveled all over the world, carrying Beads of Courage Team Beads with me along the way; on the Inca trail, up snow capped volcanoes, but never in my own country and there was still that little voice in my heart telling me I am meant for bigger things. I could help and inspire so many more people; I just needed a plan… then I realized:

I have been helped by SO MANY wonderful individuals along my travels, and I believe now is the time to ‘pay it forward’, and what better way of doing that then to see my own country, at my own pace, and carry a lot more Team Beads as I Walk across America for Beads of Courage!

As a member of Team Beads of Courage, I carried TEAM BEADs to Give Hope and Honor the Courage of the children and teens who are members of Beads of Courage nationwide.  I  carried a Bead for every mile of my walk – that is 3,575 Team Beads! Every Bead that I carried was given to a child who participates in the Beads of Courage Program.  

My Walk across America began May 8th, 2013 at the Pacific Ocean in a tiny town called Ocean City, WA and continued for 3,575 miles to Savannah, GA where I touched the Atlantic ocean on Tybee Island on February 1st, 2014. Along my walk, I visited 20 hospitals that currently provide the Beads of Courage Program.  Upon my arrival at hospitals I gave the children one of my very own special beads, a tiny silve shoe, with a card where I wrote down how many miles I walked, and what states I walked through with that bead. I met so many amazing, COURAGEous kids, who always inspiried me to keep going. For me, when they would ask "How do you keep going?" my answer was that you just put one foot in front of the other, one day at a time, and before you know, you've walked across an entire continent.
