My name is Colleen Haggerty and I am walking 100 miles in 100 days to raise enough money for 100 legs - that's $30,000.00. My first mile was April 2, 2010. My last mile will be July 10, 2010.
Walking a mile a day may not sound like much, but for me, an amputee of 32 years, it is. Three months ago I couldn't walk around the block without pain. Since then I have been taking daily walks, adding a little more distance every week so that I am now able to walk a mile a day.
Regaining this mobility has been liberating and has expanded my world. So many more possibilities are open to me now. For people in developing countries a prosthetic leg and the ability to walk is directly linked to the possibility of earning a living, going to school and being an active, contributing member of their communities.
You can read more about my personal journey on my blog.
You can watch a story about my campaign on KOMO4-TV.
You can walk with me when I complete my 100th mile at POF's walkathon on July 10th in Seattle's Seward Park. Register here.
Please step up and support me. Together we can help 100 people regain their mobility and their lives again. Thank you.
