 Hiking for a Cause

Have a look around the web site, and check out my progress as I walk from Brooksville, FL to San Diego, CA and then northward to Seattle, WA. I am walking to raise awareness and funds for the following nonprofit health organizations: The Moffitt Cancer Center, The Shriners, St. Joseph's Hospital, St. Joseph's Children's Hospital, and Miles For Hope These organizations were chosen because of my belief in what they do for others' and has personal and deep meaning to me. I hope you will tag into my web site where there is information on each of these sites and I hope you will find that one of them reaches into your heart as they have mine. The web site has a donation link so that you can make your donation directly to the cause of your choice and they will know that the funds were raised by my efforts and my cause.  Click here to donate to other nonprofit health organizations in your local community. Please consider donating to one of these worthy causes, and if you can possibly donate an additional amount to help fund my trip it would be greatly appreciated.
