4-Time Stroke Survivor Crosses the US, Raising Money for Stroke Victims
This is 63-year-old Mycle’s fourth walk across the U.S. He has previously trekked from California to Washington, DC in 2010, from San Diego, CA to Seattle, WA in 2011, and from Maine to Miami in 2012. This journey is 3780 miles long, and he meets directly with stroke survivors at hospitals along the way. It’s an attempt to raise awareness about stroke warning signs, and money for stroke research.
This is Mycle’s longest walk attempted to date; he hopes to raise $1 million dollars in donations along the way.He will walk through Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire & Maine.
“I want stroke survivors to get off the couch,” says Mycle. “Walk to your mailbox today and walk past your mailbox tomorrow.”
The second reason Mycle walks is to raise money to help fund stroke research and medical advances. Donations he receives during his journey will go to the American Stroke Association & American Heart Association.
Along his route, Mycle will visit 20 hospitals and spend time with stroke survivors and the doctors who treat them. He provides inspiration and encouragement to both groups.
Mycle will set off from Providence Portland Medical Center on Gilsan Street in Portland, OR on Tuesday, April 15, 2014. His walk will take 8 months to complete, and he plans to arrive at Maine Medical Center in downtown Portland, ME on December 13, 2014.
