Walk Across Country Begins at Holden Beach

On February 2, 2019, Thomas Curran will begin an 8+ month journey across the country–starting in Holden Beach, NC–to support the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation.

To most of us, the thought of walking all day… for days… weeks… MONTHS of our life, sounds like torture. Surely, no one would volunteer for such an act.

But Thomas is a brave soul, looking for adventure. To him, this is a soul-searching rite of passage that he needs at this stage in his life.

His journey is part personal challenge, part fund raiser, and a complete act of courage.

To learn more about Thomas’ journey visit Moving On West.

If you’re as inspired by his story as I am, you can help out by donating (gogetfunding.com), sending him words of encouragement (facebook), or even providing a place to stay (email). Thomas says even being able to pitch a tent in your back yard would be incredibly helpful.

If you’re a Carolinian, here are the NC/SC towns where he’s hoping to camp:

  • Shallote
  • Longwood
  • Loris
  • Mullins
  • Marion
  • Darlington
  • Hartsville
  • McBee
  • Lancaster
  • Rock Hill
  • York
  • Blacksburg
  • Forest City
  • Asheville
  • Marshall
  • Hot Springs
