Debbie and Dan Wickersham - American Legion Post 121 - Blairsville, Ga.
Debbie and I completed our 100 miles in the first few weeks of the event, but we are continuing the miles. Although exercise is a regular part of our lives, the 100 Miles for Hope was just a great program and cause for us in which to participate. Debbie is a top-notch fast-walker. I literally have to run in order just to stay even with her pace; therefore, I bicycle which is much more sane, at least in my opinion. Exercise is such an important medicine, and these types of programs not only provide financial assistance to the children supported by this event but generate a spark of enthusiasm for many to get off the couch and gain that important health benefit. I would like to see this as an annual event!
