Preparing for the Leap

Updated: Jan 2, 2019

Walking 6 million steps across America takes a lot of planning and a lot of faith.

Hi, I'm Peter Munson. Thank you so much for taking an interest in 6 Million Steps for Kids! It has taken years to get ready for a journey of this magnitude. Here are some of the things I have done to prepare for this adventure:

  • Backpacked the entire 500-mile Colorado Trail from Denver to Durango

  • Formed a new 501(c)(3) non-profit organization called Bright Future for Children

  • Made the decision to resign from my job as the rector of St. Ambrose Episcopal Church in Boulder, Colorado (I’ll be sharing more about this part of my leap in a separate blog.)

He did not hear God say audible words, but the message was clear and rather succinct: “Walk across the country, speak along the way, and raise money for organizations and ministries that serve children.”

Be sure to check back often, as I share my stories and experiences from the road!
