2 coasts ... 1 HOPE

On January 6th 2009, I will be flying out to LA and walking back to Boston, raising money for cancer research. The route I'm taking should take 5 months and cover roughly 3,800 miles. We will be filming the entire trip for an upcoming documentary.

So it begins.....

Well here we are, this is where the fun begins. In four short months, Bruce & I will be flying to Los Angeles to start the 3,800 mile walk back to Boston.

I'm not sure if training actually started today or not. I walked about 5 miles and rode about 12 but thats been happening for awhile now(the walking part anyway). We are anticipating a gym sponsorship from a local gym so we can start a real workout regiment. We'll also start eating better, which means no more chocolate goodness from the Green Bean for me. Thankfully, Karen and Nicole will keep me in line.

We had our first fund-raiser over the weekend at Outdoor World in Rochester. My mom organized a 50/50 raffle that brought in $128 for the Jimmy Fund. Way to go Mom! With the support team we have behind us there is no doubt in my mind we'll reach our goal. Speaking of the goal, donations can start being sent to the address on the page. Be sure to make the checks payable as described so it will be applied to our account, please.

Well, I've gone on long enough. Keep checking back to read about our progress, new sponsors, and so on.
Thanks for your support.
