Join the Fight
Support the Walk for Diabetes
along the
Road to Santiago!!

After spending much time contacting corporations, which service the diabetic, cardiac, and hiking consumer, and trying to collaborate with them in the way of endorsements and/or some type of financial involvement, I learned the final word — no corporate financing to individuals — to foundations only.
Since corporations could not support my project, I then turned to my friends, family, neighbors, employers (past and present), co-workers, health-care givers, local businesses, and organizations. Which was just as well since it has resulted in spreading my message about diabetes and the benefits of walking. Now the word has been spread around to individuals who care and can take action.

The fact is that I am an individual who is trying to reach other individuals in order to increase their diabetes awareness and encourage them to modify their lifestyles with daily exercise. Thus, I am now approaching individuals and small businesses for small individual donations to support my walking crusade. Interest, support, and enthusiasm have been terrific!! But I still have a long way to go.

Although my operating budget has been pared down to bare bones with little wiggle room for emergencies (which is a worry for those people who hope I will return even if it is to start tormenting them again), I have been able to begin the journey with high hopes. A local bank has opened an account, Road To Santiago, as a vehicle for receiving donations. The bank is also donating two weeks of support. (My expenses while on the road will be $25/day for food and shelter, plus medical expenses.) Since I calculate that my trip will take about seven weeks, I would be grateful for any support you could provide.
