Arrived in Greensboro, 48 miles in last 2 days, beautiful scenery on the route, and a huge change in temperature. Probably no more temps over low 80s. It was a gorgeous day to walk in temps maxing at 74 degrees, and perfect air quality.
12 days in, and I’m extremely happy how things are progressing. Naturopathic doctors in North Carolina have been amazing! It’s very heart-warming knowing your colleagues are helping in so many ways. Thank you North Carolina NDs.
Met Jaylen this afternoon walking into Greensboro. He is an amazing young man! What happens when you are walking, and aligned w people you see on the journey – great things happen. I told Haylen to never give up on his education and improving himself, and he was so adamant that I keep my walk alve and thriving!
What is health equity?
Health equity is achieved when every person has the opportunity to “attain his or her full health potential” and no one is “disadvantaged from achieving this potential because of social position or other socially determined circumstances.” Health inequities are reflected in differences in length of life; quality of life; rates of disease, disability, and death; severity of disease; and access to treatment.
Why walking for social change?The amount of risk and vulnerability one is willing to endure for a cause, is directly proportional to people’s willingness to open their hearts, their generosity, and their willingness to listen and be inspired. This method of non-violent, direct action, often “earns one the right to be heard,” from people I have just met.”
If there is anything you can do to help the walk, I would greatly appreciate!!
