Hello once again, my name is Nathan Quist. I am the Safety Officer for Victor Volunteer Fire Department. Feb. 2014 I will walk from my house in Divide, Colorado to Colorado Springs, Colorado in my wildland firefighting gear. The money that is raised will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in honor of my wife, Jamie, and another wonderful lady who I never had the chance to meet, Tonya. My goal for this walk is to not only raise money, but to also help raise awareness. The walk will be approximately 26 miles long and take around 8 hours to finish. Please show your support for this wonderful cause! You can also go to this link to show your support: http://pages.lightthenight.org/rm/DenverL13/LovingMemoryOfTonya

THANK YOU!!!!! I hope to see you out there!
