The walk is complete.
Clayton Klein's fifth annual walk from Paradise to Hell & Beyond to Ohio to benefit the Michigan Hospice Organization ended on Sept. 28 at the Ohio line. After walking 420 miles from the shores of Lake Superior down the Middle of the Mitten to Ohio, Klein says it's good to be finished.
Compiling a log of miles traveled by those accompanying him, he has figured that the following folks walked the most.
Of all the people who walked with me, these are the ones who walked the most miles:
Todd Brooks of Perry -------------------- 46.0 miles
Peggy Noyce of Houghton Lake ------ 37.0 miles
George Winegar of Howell -------------- 34.7 miles
William Kenyon of Adrian --------------- 21.0 Miles
And the Group of 5 from Waters to Grayling ----- 20.00 miles
Klein does not expect to do such extensive walks again, but possibly smaller, more varied events might be planned.You may still contribute to the Michigan Hospice Organization on behalf of Clayton's 2009 Walk. Contact Lisa Buttigieg at www.mihospice.org.
And, you missed getting a Walking Man tee to commemorate this historic walk, please visit Craig Backus' EmbroidMe website listed at the right on the sidebar of the blog. The shirt will be available on line, and you don't have to get safety green...even though it shows up a mile away (seems to me anyway!).
There are other beautiful colors, as well, and it's a great quality tee to wear in honor of Clayton's walk or to give as a gift.
It also serves as a reminder to those who see it, about Michigan Hospice & Palliative Care Organization.
Thanks, everyone, for making this fifth walk from Paradise to Hell & Beyond to Ohio, a great success.
Stay tuned for updates, photos, and other good news about our extraordinary Walking Man, Clayton Klein.
