From February 14 – July 8, 2011, the Long Walk 3 will take place across America. The 5,000+ mile walk is to raise awareness of diabetes, which is at epidemic levels across America. Hardest hit are Native Americans.

The Long Walkers will leave La Jolla, California on February 14, 2011 (Valentine’s Day – Heart Day) and arrive in Washington DC on July 8th. Walkers will split into two routes: North and South. Along the way, they will hold community talks about reversing diabetes and heart disease through diet and exercise.

The walkers will also launch a CLEAN UP MOTHER EARTH campaign by picking up trash along both routes.  This task is  a global, grassroots effort to promote harmony with our delicate environment.
