On January 3, 2015, Pinion Pine firefighter Anthony Leach began his 800 mile walk, raising awareness and money to help combat pancreatic cancer.
In early December, Anthony lost a close loved one to pancreatic cancer and since has been preparing for a remarkable journey. Anthony has decided to walk Historic Route 66 from the California-Arizona border to the Texas-New Mexico border. His trip is roughly 800 miles and will be done solely on foot. His trip will take approximately 3 months to complete with a goal of averaging 25 miles per day. Anthony is an extremely athletic individual who regularly participates in ultra marathons and trail running events.
