Lend A Hand
Walking across America was a huge challenge, especially after four strokes. Although at a disadvantage, Mycle’s strength and determination will saw him to the finish line. Now that he’s walking from San Diego to Seattle, he’s hitting similar hurdles. It’s not all rainbows and sunshine either, so any assistance would be tremendously appreciated. Here are a few ways you can help the movement:
Donate to the National Stroke Association.
The goal is to raise awareness and donations for the healing programs at the National Stroke Association and the OC Stroke Association. The objective is to raise $10,000 for these organizations to continue their vital research. Every penny counts. Any amount, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated!
Mycle has two basic survival necessities: water, food, fuel. Other than that, it’s a map and the wind at his back. As most of you know, it’s nice to have a pillow under your head every now and then. Direct donations will provide basic lodging along the way, so Mycle won’t have to fend off any mountain lions.
Contacting the media and hospitals.
Part of the Mycle’s movement is to speak at hospitals across the country and meet survivors, spreading the word of hope, encouragement, and awareness. The more media coverage, the better. This means Television stations, radio stations, and newspapers. With ample publicity, the journey will undoubtedly be successful.
How can you help? Contact your local media outlets and spread the word. To coordinate articles and interviews, visit the PRESS KIT for details to provide the media with. Afterwards, please CONTACT us with whom you spoke with and when. We will follow up.
Cheer him on, honk your horn, or even join the walk for a bit! This isn’t just a walk, it’s a movement. All are welcome! Reference the CALENDAR for date and location inquiries.
And remember, the journey doesn’t end at the finish line. Please, open your hearts, lend a hand, and see the big picture.
