Volunteers Needed for EverWalk New England Event in September

Cuba swim endurance mavericks Diana Nyad and Bonnie Stoll are committed to leading Americans away from sedentary lifestyles into the great outdoors. Their goal is to turn American into an EverWalk nation of walkers. This vision is being realized through epic EverWalk events around the country. The first Ever Walk was held in 2016, with walkers traveling from Los Angeles to San Diego in one week!

The second EverWalk will take place in New England, departing from Boston’s Copley Square on Sunday, September 10, walking up the beautiful north of Boston coastline, arriving at Cape Elizabeth, Maine, on Saturday, September 16, 2017.

Hundreds of volunteers will be needed along the EverWalk route throughout the week. Volunteers will be asked to register walkers, provide assistance along the walking route, call emergency services if needed, and a variety of other services. Monetary stipends are available for volunteers.

For more information on this exciting EverWalk through New England or to learn more about volunteering for one day or the entire week, contact event Coordinator Kelly Knox at kayknox@live.com or 860-301-6205. To learn about the EverWalk vision and future events, visit www.everwalk.com.
