The Walk

The walk is a journey across the U.S. that started on May 10, 2011 in Winchester, MA. The walk will take 187 days (more than 6 months) and cover more than 3,400 miles ending in San Diego, CA on November 18, 2011.

As I pass though the various towns and cities along the route, my goal is to meet, talk to, and interview individuals who live with MS, their families and friends, doctors and all others who specialize in treating and researching MS.

    I lived in San Diego for the past 7 years and am a HUGE part of the MS Community! I might have to meet you at the finish line to give you a high five and set you up with a place to stay. In the meantime, if you pass through Wilmington, NC you can 100% crash on my couch. I’d be honored!

    Amazing undertaking, Steve. I know your mother and have followed your trials and triumphs for a number of years. It’s a miracle that you are alive and well enough to set off on this adventure. I will definitely follow your progress. And I’m sending out your mom’s email to my address book!

    Best of luck, Mike Ward

    I learned of your endeavor through the VT Alumni communication, my husband and I are alumni. My father just called and you are staying with them tomorrow evening in Kingsport. My mother has MS. I currently live in Knoxville and could possibly help you out here. I know a woman who specifically teaches yoga to MS patients. Good luck, your stories brought tears to my eyes.

      Hey Erica,
      I was unaware that the VT alumni association had been doing anything with the story. It is good to hear though. I am at your parent’s house right now. Great people and very helpful with everything. As of right now I do not have anywhere to stay in Knoxville, so any help would be greatly appreciated. I would love to interview and maybe film a little of the class if your friend would be up for that. Let me know what you and her think.

    I have MS and live in Madison, Alabama. Just saw the story this morning regarding your travels. I don’t expect you to be in the area this PM, but if you get this and you need a place to shower, wash, eat and sleep my home is open.

      Hey Zine,
      Did you see it in the Huntsville Times? I wish we had made contact earlier. I had stopped at Chic-fil-a in Madison, but by the time I got your comment I was in Athens. Sorry. Keep following and keep fighting.
