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...
Won't you join me and Panda, either on part of the trail, or with a generous pledge!?
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 the 100 km challenge to repay AVA for the benefits I have enjoyed.
