What are we doing? We’re walking from New York, New York to Santa Monica, California on foot; No trains, no planes, and no automobiles
When? The walk begins on June 1st 2013 from Times Square, NYC with the finish line set as Santa Monica pier in California. We hope to dip our toes in the Pacific Ocean around late December 2013
Why? First and foremost, we’re doing it to raise as much money as possible for two fantastic charities: Parkinson’s UK and CLIC Sargent. But there are other reasons too. We both enjoy discovering the culture of a country by actually living there (we met whilst working a ski season in the French Alps), so we decided that there was no better way to “see the real America” than to walk from one side of it to the other, taking in as much as possible along the way.
