Last year, I walked 100 km over a weekend with Panda, my Giant Schnauzer, and we raised over $800.
This year, I am again walking to raise money to support the AVA vision: “To increasingly engage Americans in lifelong walking and other noncompetitive physical fitness activities.”
AVA is asking for all donations to be made on March 26th.
I will walk 200 km in the week leading up to the “Big Give” date and I am asking friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, and associates to make a pledge to support my walk. A generous pledge of $1 per km translates into $200 for AVA. 10 cents per km nets AVA $20.

Some of the routes I plan to walk during the walk-a-thon week...
The longer routes are in a "figure-8" configuration. If the total distance is too much and you would like to join Panda on just one of the loops, she would welcome the company!
Won't you join me and Panda, either on part of the trail, or with a generous pledge!?
Call 360-369-8296 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know your plans.
Hi, my name is Bob Hall and I joined All Weather Walkers last year and started walking seriously last summer before I retired in August. During my career, I spent several decades hunched over a computer and developed a chronic back ache. When I retired I vowed to take the dog for long walks every day. Guess what? No more back ache! I am doing these challenges to repay AVA for the benefits I have enjoyed.
