"When the runners/walkers come together once again at Kickapoo to carry the message "All Life Is Sacred" we will be renewing an ancient tradition that transcends time, place, and culture. We sacrifice all to simply carry the message; we run and walk to keep alive the Spirit, Ceremony, and Prayer. It is an ideal convergence of Spirituality, Ceremony, support,activism, health, camping, and renewal of ancient traditions that unite us all. Mutual effort, sacrifice, and simple action for the common good, teaches us that we are all part of one human family. Plus for those of us that have traveled the road in this way, we have discovered that it simply makes us feel good." - Larry Crane, 5/3/2004
