My name is Chris, I am a career firefighter at The Township of Spring Fire Department, a volunteer firefighter at my hometown of Tinicum Township, and I'm looking to repeat my 60 mile journey in Philadelphia as Firefighter Chris: walking the full 60 miles in full gear, including a 20lb pack, as my personal contribution to defeat breast cancer. Last year I met so many strong women with amazing stories which has motivated me to repeat this task and then some: I will also be walking the same 60 miles the weekend before in Philadelphia.

Last year I was asked why I would take such a challenge, and ultimately the answer was "Why Not." There were so many women walking who had underwent chemotherapy or were still being treated, there was no reason for me to say no. What started out as a bet became a life-changing experience for me, and I can't wait to catch up with the friends I made and hear the stories they have to tell.

I ask that you please contribute to my fundraising efforts so that I can, once again, attempt to do what I can to help end this disease.
