San Antonio, TX – June, 2020
Let’s Walk to the Beach!
Tom Daniels Tribute Walk
Tom Daniels had a dream to walk from The Alamo to Port Aransas and so last year (2019) he did. His plan? To raise awareness about the health benefits of walking and to fundraise for ThriveWell Cancer Foundation, San Antonio, a local non-profit dedicated to providing support to cancer patients and offering free programs to improve the quality of life for them and their families in San Antonio and surrounding communities. Along with friends and family Tom, 64, successfully completed the 156-mile walk called El Gran Camino – “The Great Walk” over a course of a couple of weeks while taking breaks to sleep, eat and for Mother’s Day.
At the time he poignantly said, “Running, walking, exercise and cancer has impacted my family for more than 50 years. There is no doubt that walking and ThriveWell Cancer Foundation change lives. Walking benefits good health and the ThriveWell Cancer Foundation benefits cancer patients, cancer survivors and their families. So, let’s go onward to Port Aransas and celebrate life.” Sadly, Tom passed away in April this year from an unexpected, quick and sudden fight with pancreatic cancer. So, this year his family and friends are walking to honor Tom and in support of ThriveWell and the patients it serves.
Happening on June 12 -14, 2020 as a tribute to Tom, and in support of ThriveWell. Tom walked 156 miles last year and this year the Walk is being walked for HIM. Staggered groups will cover the 156-mile route to Port Aransas from The Alamo. Each group will walk approximately 8-11 miles starting at 7:00 am and ending at 11:00 am. Teams can overnight at available hotels in (Karnes City and Sinton) or return to SA and resume the route the next day at the assigned starting point. Support drivers with refreshments will be available for all walkers. Each participant will receive a free t-shirt. The Walk kicks off from the Alamo, Friday, June 12, with a photo opportunity at 6:00 am followed by the walk at 7:00 am.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME to join in for some (or all of the walk). Supporters and volunteers are welcome to come along at any point along the way. Sign-up here.
