Traveling nearly 4,000 miles for a walk may seem like a long way to go for something that can be done anywhere. But the walks we have been doing as FreeWalkers are more than the walk itself. Mostly, they are about personal challenge and the power of community - things that John F. Kennedy stood for.
Here's my Tumblr reflection of the Kennedy-Sittard Walk in April 2014. Beautiful and gracious Dutch people. Ray was instrumental in making it happen. Hua Davis, our spirit award winner that year and the real bouyant spirit of the trip is no longer with us and is still missed.
