Raleigh, NC

We started walking Aug. 4, and finished 100 miles on Sept. 23. I had several chemotherapy treatments during this period for leukemia. We had good 3-4 mile days and lower days when I was in the clinic. My wife Mel was by my side and walked over 200 miles in the same time span. It’s a way to invigorate donations for the Veterans & Children Foundation, as well as to encourage American Legion Family members to be active in this time of social distancing. I plan to continue our walks.
