Thank you to everyone who has walked with us the last 4 years.
Although walking for Edie is and will continue to be one of the foundation’s focuses, next September we will not hold a walk, but instead, On July 24, 2020 Edie would have turned 50 so we will host a 50th birthday celebration in her honor. Details to come in the new year.

Why walk?

For Edie, walking was therapy for the body and soul. Walking helped keep Edie focused and grounded in good times and bad. It was her release, her way of keeping fit, relieving stress, and simply achieving a sense of well-being.

Edie embraced life every day and it always included a walk along one of her favorite routes. As everyone who knew her would agree, Edie stayed connected with friends and family by inviting them to join her on a walk. When we think about Edie, we always remember how much she enjoyed walking and talking along the way.
