The recent trend of doing marathons or perceived long distances exercise has surged in popularity.
I wonder if one could walk the distances between the East Coast to the West Coast in local walks in a year? It is roughly 3,100 miles between the two coasts but with incremental 5K and up walks could one raise a lot of awareness and still walk the entire length of North America?
One such event is the Alzheimer's Walk as 5 million Americans are battling the debilitating disease there is nearly an additional 2 million more Americans dealing with helping those 5 million.
The Walk to End Alzheimer's is this fall in cities across the nation and I am participating in the local effort.
