Michelle & Peter's Epic Journey/Fundraiser for HOPE AACR Continues!

Part 2: Peter is now on his journey across the country! He began his journey on April 10, 2024 and Peter is running from Virginia Beach, Virginia to Newport, Oregon. Please consider donating to HOPE AACR per Peter’s request!

Part 1: Michelle and her dog Kip are members of HOPE AACR. Michelle’s fundraising walk across America began September 9, 2023 in Carlsbad, CA. Michelle walked 2,600 miles to raise funds for HOPE Animal-Assisted Crisis Response and we are so grateful for her efforts! Her husband, Peter, drove the support van along the way, with Kip co-piloting most of the way. Michelle, Peter and Kip planned and trained for this epic journey for 4 years!

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!
