Randy’s preparations for his ambitious 100-mile walk afforded me the opportunity to write a guest blog this week.

As I write this, Randy is just about halfway through his 100-mile walk. Our team for NHAB’s 3k walk on Saturday is fast approaching our 100-person goal. I suppose it is not very suspenseful but I have no doubt that Randy will accomplish the 100 miles. His vision and force of will are a part of our everyday life and I have unerring faith in his ability to finish.

Yet, there is more to his success than that. There is, obviously, the fantastic partnership with an amazing guide dog, The Mighty Quinn. There is the support of Randy’s amazing walk team of Robert, Jennifer and Chris (Thank you for letting me feel he is safe through your support!). To our friends Sarah and Robbie who took over some key coordination tasks, thank you! There are those who choose to join NHAB’s walk-a-thon, donate, or share our story. The community support has been overwhelming and I know I can speak for Randy when I offer a resounding thank you from both of us.

Ultimately, Randy will have completed a great feat through his own strength, yet buoyed by the love, support and strength of those around him. It is my wish that you can take some strength back from that and look for some peaks of your own to go after. Let us know how we can support YOU in your own quest!

Werner and Randy
