Walking for Children Springfield or Bust

$6,075 of $12,500 goal

Raised by 127 people in 52 months
I have conducted the Walk 4 times so far.  In 2014 & 2015 I walked from Highland, NY to Albany and then the Shriners Hospital in Springfield.  In 2016 & 2017 I continued on tothe Shriners Hospital in Boston after reaching Springfield.  To date I have raised a little over $23,000.

The 2018 Walk will begin on May 18th and I will again walk to the Shriners Hospital in Boston.  I am dedicating this years effort to Christopher, a young boy who was severely burned and has had over 14surgeries so far at the Boston Hospital.  Half of the money raised this year will be donated to the Boston Hospital and the other half will be divided between the hospitals in Springfield & Philadelphia and the Cyprus Shriners Transportation Fund. 

The Cyprus Shriners Transportation Fund provides free transportation to children receiving care at the Shriners hospitals in Springfield & Boston.  Both hospitals specialize in Pediatric Orthopedics and Cleft Lip & Palette care.  The Boston Hospital also operates a Pediatric Burn Care Center.

The 2018 Walk begins on Friday. I will be walking 265+ miles in 8 1/2 days and I'm sure it will again be an adventure. This years Walk is being done in honor of Christopher, a boy I met who was severely burned a few years ago and is a patient at the Shriners Hospital in Boston. He has already undergone 14 surgeries and will have more as he continues to grow. Half of the money we raise will be donated to the Boston Hospital in his name and the rest divided between the Cyprus Transportation Fund and the Shriners Hospitals in Springfield and Philadelphia. Every dollar counts and all are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Anyone interested in helping me to help children? I'll be setting out for Boston in 8 weeks and am hoping to raise $10,000 which will be split between the Shriners Hospital in Boston (50%) and the Cyprus Transportation Fund, and the Shriners Hospitals in Springfield & Philadelphia (50%). THANKS!
