Is Mycle walking the lonesome road?
Technically, yes. Mycle is doing the physical walking on his own, but he has the undying support of friends, fans, and family. For the Walk Across America, he stayed in small motels along the way. Some nights, he’d crash with hospitable folk. For Portland to Portland, his good friend is driving along so Mycle can get proper rest. All of this still needs support!

When’s the walk?
The next walk starts on April 15, 2014 in Portland OR at Providence Medical Center Portland. As you read this, Mycle is preparing to walk all the way to Portland ME. His expected arrival date is December 13, 2014 (12-13-14)!!
How the heck is he walking from Portland to Portland?
His own two feet, mostly, with a lot of inspiration and determination. The only assistance he’ll have is a cane to support his right side, a result from his third stroke. He plans to walk about 18 miles per day seven days per week.
Why all the walking?
Mycle is determined to raise awareness to prevent and care for heart disease and stroke patients. He wants to publicize the early warning signs of stroke and provide hope and encouragement to stroke survivors to keep up with their recovery. As a part of his “Get off the Couch” campaign, he wants everyone to keep moving, start exercising, and stay healthy.
Where’s the walk?
Starting from Portland Oregon, Mycle will head due east to Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska. Iowa, then cut north to Minnesota, Wisconsin and back down to Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont and New Hampshire and finally into Portland, Maine!
