Michelle Breach and her dog Kip, volunteer members of Hope Animal-Assisted Crisis Response, a national, all volunteer non-profit organization in the US and Canada, began their Hope Across America Walk on Saturday, September 9, 2023, in California to raise funds for Hope AACR. Since that day they have walked over 650 miles and expect to arrive in El Paso, Texas later this week.

Michelle is being supported by her husband Peter who is driving the van and chauffeuring Kip when he needs a break from walking. Hope AACR members across the country are following virtually and some plan to meet Michelle and Kip along the way for support and encouragement. Follow virtually at: HOPE Across America Walk
