I am marching to draw attention to the Climate Crisis. The more people are involved, the more attention it will receive. I will also write about my experience and spread the word that way on my blog Exploring the Green Road.
The walk from Geneva to Chicago is my current goal* (30 miles) starting September 3 or 4, 2014 and ending September 6, 2014. Ideally, I'd love to walk the whole 3,000 miles from Santa Monica to Washington D.C. because I love this project and think it will draw attention to the greatest challenge of our lifetimes. BUT, I would need probably $35 to $50K to make that work as I would not expect an employer to hold a job for me for 8-9 months.
Thanks for supporting me!
*Originally was going to start in Des Moines and walk (or bike) for approximately 30 days but vacation days with my current job were used to do other Climate Reality presentation projects this year as well as my less-than-happy knee have caused me to rethink my level of participation in this great event.
