Don Stevenson, Auburn’s man of sole, is about to launch his latest long-distance dedication.
Stevenson, The Pacin’ Parson, plans to walk 3,000 miles across America – from Auburn to Silver Springs, MD – to raise funds and awareness for pulmonary hypertension (PH), a high-blood pressure disease that affects the heart and lungs.
The walk officially begins at 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 9 from the steps of Auburn City Hall, 25 W. Main St. Supporters are welcome to attend.
The 79-year-old Stevenson hinted last year at retirement from cross country walks after completing a 20,000 -mile trek to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society last year. But the former Marine, pastor, teacher, truck driver and firefighter has decided to walk the long road again.
