Walking because I Can and To help Richmond area cancer patients get to treatment!

Fall has many meanings to me...It's a beautiful time of the year for starters.   The air becomes cooler and the sky a little bluer. The  grandeur of the leaves give us pause.  And it marks the transition from summer to winter. The fall is also a time of personal reflection for me...A time of uncertainty.  A time of deep contemplation.  A time of grief and a time of joy.  And it marks my transition from my 2 birth legs to life with 1 leg.   I took my 2nd first steps in the fall and I did FALL (literally learning!).  Walking is the simplest and cheapest means of transportation until you don't have a leg to walk.  Transportation to and from cancer treatments shouldn't be a barrier until you don't have a ride to treatment or can't afford the gas.  Funds towards this fundraiser with help ease the burden for patients in need of help with transportation to any Richmond/Tricities are Cancer hospital for treatment. 

Update:  My first $2500 will be matched at 100%!  Help me get to that $5000 goal and beyond!

Please support my fundraising efforts of a symbolic walk on the Virginia Capital Trail from Jamestown to Richmond.  I have decided to stretch this activity out over two weekends so that more people can get involved and walk with me.  I will be starting in Jamestown on October 22   and will be walking that Saturday and Sunday October 23 the first weekend with a goal of making it to Charles City Courthouse Sunday October 23 where there is a very nice welcoming center.  If everything goes as planned, my starting point Friday morning October 28 will be Charles City County Courthouse.  You will have to check my personal Facebook page (Robin Yoder) or The Hawthorne's Facebook Page to get live updates to check my progress on Friday October 28, Saturday October 29 and Sunday October 30 (52 miles).  And, if ALL goes as planned, I will hopefully be making my way into Richmond (Dock Street) sometime before sunset on Sunday October 30  walking "in honor" and "in memory" of those whose lives have been touched by cancer and whose lives have profoundly touched mine.  My fundraiser is in support of The Hawthorne Cancer Foundation's transportation fund where assistance is provided to help those cancer patients in the Richmond Metropolitan  area in need, to ensure they can get to their treatments without obstacles or barriers. 

It will be a challenge for me for sure...but never more than the day I stood for the first time and realized my life had changed forever because of cancer.  

I invite YOU to walk segments with me and together explore to beauty along the trail that will for sure be spectacular!  Check my site frequently as information and details about my walk will be updated regularly! 

Please contribute and be part of the change for someone in need! 

With gratitude,

Robin Yoder
