CFCA President Bob Hentzen, accompanied by a core team of walkers, completed a historic 17-month, nearly 8,000-mile solidarity walk through Latin America on June 6.
During the 17-month adventure, certain images have become associated with the journey for participants and spectators. We’ve compiled nine of them in this list:
|Camper: This 1983 Toyota Dolphin, a “home away from home,” has led virtually every leg of the walk through 12 countries.|
It was a refuge for Hentzen and his wife, Cristina, as well as a sign that the walkers were nearby.
|Footwear: Every walker, including Hentzen, swore by a good pair of shoes and socks.|
|Safety vest: Bright orange and yellow vests alerted drivers to be cautious.|
|Water: Walkers hydrated every six kilometers.|
|Fruit: Fruit provided the necessary carbohydrates and nourishment to keep walkers going throughout the day.|
|Coffee: A hot cup of coffee not only helped the walkers battle lack of sleep, but it also warmed the body on mornings when the temperature dipped into the 40s.|
|Hat: No seasoned walker could do without this protection from the intense sun.|
|Mobile toilet: The walk has passed through some remote areas. The mobile toilet was a welcome relief when nature called.|
|Tooth fairy: Javiera, a sponsored girl from Catapilco, Chile, lost her tooth on Walk2gether!|
She and her mother, Ximena, along with several other sponsored members and their families, joined the walkers the morning of June 4.
