Kevin Schallert is 26 years old and working toward recovery from spinal cord injury. His enthusiasm and tremendous passion for life have made him the favorite patient in the ICU and now the rehabilitation clinic. He plays the song “We are the Champions” while learning to walk again and is an inspiration to everyone who has come in contact with him.
Here is a picture of him in his Halloween costume in 2014 as a viking!
Rebecca and Tim are 27 year old urban planners. Rebecca is Kevin’s cousin’s cousin. They have been wanting to walk across the US for a while and are finally going to do it. They are taking inspiration from Kevin and plan to push through the chafing, sunburns, hard sleeping surfaces, bugs, rattlesnakes, and lack of showers to make it to the end of the road. To contact Rebecca and Tim, email WalkUSA2015@gmail.com. Here they are on January 1, 2015.
