My church began the Good Friday Walk for Habitat for Humanity 30 years ago. Over the decades, with a few notable exceptions, we have had unbelievable weather for the walk, despite the fact that Good Friday moves around from late March to late April. We rescheduled one year due to a snow storm and one year the huge piles of snow forced us to change the 20 mile walk to a 3 mile loop that people could do multiple times if they chose (really boring).

But this year was unique. Yesterday’s freezing rain caused the organizers to delay the start of the walk until noon and shorten its length to 10 miles. We walked in drizzle and periods of steady rain. It never really warmed out of the 30’s. But our spirits prevailed: we walked the miles to support Habitat and its goal of decent, affordable housing.

I was determined to do the 20 miles I promised, so I added on a few loops and then a walk at the end from Cumberland up to Yarmouth and back. 6 ½ hours later, mission accomplished – 21.11 miles, 45,482 steps actually.

Team Edgar thanks you from the bottom of our soles (souls) to our hearts for your support.
