A Beautiful Test of the Human Spirit.
Walkfifty is an annual 50-mile/20-hour walk starting near the Great Salt Lake and ending near the Utah Lake. It started simply as a personal challenge for Bryan Miller and has since become a fully supported charitable fundraiser with more than a half-dozen rest stops and several mobile support vehicles. Proceeds from the walk benefit 100% of Humanity, a nonprofit foundation dedicated to making the world work for everyone.
WalkFifty is open to anyone up for a transformational journey that is both mental and physical.
More than just a charity event, WalkFifty creates an opportunity to build on the three tenants of:
- Knowledge: The event is physically and mentally challenging, requiring you to reach deep within yourself, with moments of intense introspection. Pushing yourself to your physical limits (and beyond), teaches profound lessons and provides a rare glimpse of nobility.
- Relationships: 20-hours of walking builds camaraderie. With that much time to talk and philosophize, conversations span a broad range of topics. Friendships are created that are deep and meaningful. Start in Provo as a loose band of acquaintances; end in Salt Lake as a unified band of brothers and sisters.
- Experiences: Very few attempt this challenge – even fewer complete it. Bragging rights are on the line. Those who participate have a new found respect for pioneers, refugees and others who have walked long distances. The experience is transformational and life-changing.
Who: This walk is open to everyone who registers.
What: A fifty mile walk to be completed in twenty hours.
When: Saturday September 8, 2018. Start time TBA.
Where: Jordan River Trail
Why: For the fun, the challenge, to enjoy being outdoors, to be healthy, to move your body, to meet new people, to have great conversations, to do something new, to learn a lot about yourself, and to develop confidence.
