Congrats to Jonathon Stalls on his 3000-mile Kiva Walk!
Last weekend, I was lucky enough to join Jonathon Stalls for the last two days of his cross-country walk to raise awareness and funds for Kiva.org.
Crossing the Golden Gate on a perfect morning
On Friday, I and the other taggers-along marched with him from the Golden Gate Bridge to Kiva’s office downtown, and on Saturday, a merry band of about 50 people did the Bay-to-Breakers walk to the Pacific, followed by a lap around the Presidio to reach a celebratory reception.

After just 20 miles total, two-thirds of one percent of Jonathon’s walk, my feet didn’t want to move for about three days. Not sure how Jonathon managed for eight solid months, but there it is, with over $400,000 raised to show for it.
Jonathon and his trusty sidekick finally reach the ocean
Congrats to Jonathon and everyone who supported his walk along the way! It was an honor to be there at the grand finale.
