The Hike Christine and Jessie will depart on June 15, 2012 from the Appalachian Trails northernmost point, Mount Katahdin, Maine. They will battle black flies, ticks, raging stream crossings, every imaginable kind of weather on their journey, but they will walk continuously until they reach Springer Mountain in Georgia.
Kindness CountsWhat does Kindness Mean to You? • Compassion • Caring • Helping others • Being friendly • Smiling • Volunteering • What else?
What’s Pay-It-Forward? When you pay-it-forward, you don’t repay the person who did something nice for you. Instead, you do something nice for someone else. For example, if someone changes your tire while you are stranded on the highway, you might pay it forward by shoveling your elderly neighbor’s walkway after a snow has fallen.
How big should mykind act be? So how big does each good deed need to be? They can be as big or small as you want, from opening the door for a stranger or feeding a homeless person to volunteering. The aim is simple: show someone in one’s life kindness and feel good about it.
When you dedicate a mile, you make a promise.Walk4Good needs 2,180 dedications. One for each mile Christine and Jessie walk.These dedications are free. Anyone may make a dedication in honor of a loved one (living or deceased).In return for making a free dedication, PAY-IT-FORWARD!
Some dedications MILE 204 – DEIRDRE LYDON: I dedicate a mile to my grandpa. How will you Pay-It-Forward? I will be supportive of others in their time of need. MILE 101 – AMY D’AMICO: I would like to make a dedication to our military who are away from their families right now. How will you Pay-It-Forward? I have collected Halloween candy from neighbors and students and will be putting packages together to send overseas to our troops so they can truly enjoy a Halloween as well.
The Power Let’s do the math: 2,180 miles = 2,180 dedications and 2,180 good deeds that touch thousands of people, who in turn will go out and help others. That’s the power of Walk4Good.
