Thank you for considering giving to HOPE! Your donation directly supports our mission to provide comfort and encouragement through animal-assisted support to individuals affected by crises and disasters.
Michelle and her dog Kip are members of Hope AACR. Michelle began her fundraising walk across America on September 9, 2023 in Carlsbad, CA. Michelle is walking to raise funds for Hope Animal-Assisted Crisis Response! Her husband, Peter, will be driving the support van along the way, with Kip co-piloting most of the way. Michelle, Peter and Kip have been planning and training for this epic journey for 4 years and expect to arrive in Jekyll Island, Georgia on January 18, 2024!
Michelle completed her 2,600 mile journey on January 20, 2024 when she stepped into the Atlantic Ocean! Congratulations Michelle, Peter and Kip! Visit our Facebook page to watch the video! https://www.facebook.com/HopeAACR
