Walk Across America Begins
Walking has always been a way of life for us. After completing our first walk across America we knew we wanted to do it again. Walking allows us to be more present minded, stay healthy physically, and see the world from a whole different perspective. We knew that if we were going to walk across the country we needed a bigger purpose. After helping raise almost $100,000 for the nonprofit Time In A Bottle on our first walk, our love for helping nonprofits on our adventures turned into our calling.
Along with completing the East Coast Greenway from start to finish (3,000 miles), our main goals with this walk are to raise over $100,000 for the nonprofit Elevate Youth, encourage you and your communities to get outside and walk, and share the whole adventure with everyone at home through our social media platforms. We hope to inspire you to travel, explore, and find love in the little things along the way.
Why Elevate Youth?
Surrounding ourselves with great people and getting outside are two of the biggest factors to our overall wellbeing. We know that not everyone is given the opportunity to experience and learn from getting outside which led us to finding a nonprofit that helps inner city kids get out there and learn from the outdoors! It’s something a lot of us take for granted but it’s so important and impactful on a child’s life.
Like many other great Nonprofits, Elevate Youth is making a real change in their community. It takes a village to make a difference and we need all the help we can get to give more kids the opportunity to get outside and learn about themselves and about life.
We need YOU to help us reach our goal of raising over $100,000 for Elevate Youth so we can give more kids the chance to better themselves and empower them through great mentors and the great outdoors.

Why are the group walks so short?
On our last walk we always got nervous walking with people on main roads & highways. The East Coast Greenway isn’t fully completed so we planned our group walks between one and five miles longs on sections that are done.
