The Walk is On

Clayton Klein walking Paradise to Hell & Beyond for Michigan Hospice & Palliative Care

It's official. The walk is on...for Clayton Klein, embarking Friday, Sept. 4, 2009 on his 5th Annual Walk for Michigan Hospice & Palliative Care. 
That morning, the 90-year-old Fowlerville, MI resident will begin his 420-mile trek south through theheart of Michigan, from Paradise in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, downstate to Hell and on to the Ohio border Sept. 28.
Averaging 20 miles a day, the former businessman, author and adventurer is once again walking to benefit Michigan Hospice & Palliative Care Organization's educational scholarship program for Hospice employees.
Klein is timing his walk to coincide with the annual Labor Day Bridge Walk, Sept. 7, to walk across Big Mac into the Lower Peninsula. He invites the public to walk along with him on his journey -- for a short jaunt, for a day, or the entire distance -- to enjoy the early autumn beauty of Michigan, while walking for Hospice at the same time.
