Some of you might remember that last year Tom tried to walk 1,000 miles with his golden retriever, Zeke, to raise funds for Nellie’s Schoolhouse, but fell short when he had back surgery before his journey was completed. Well, he is back at it! Take a look:
Starting in mid April with his new back, Tom will try it again, but this time he will travel 500 miles to raise money for Nellie’s Schoolhouse and the Talk School in Newtown Square! He would love for individuals, families and dogs to walk with him, so one time per week, everyone will be invited to join him and Zeke as they travel throughout the Philadelphia region.
These locations with their days and times will be posted on our website, Facebook and Instagram. Tom is also in need of sponsors, so we hope you will support him, Zeke, Nellie’s Schoolhouse and The Talk School on his daily treks. Feel free as well to find corporate and small business sponsors who want to support this worthy cause. Be on the alert for updates as he and Zeke commence their 5-month journey.
