Gary's Walk

Mr. Gary's Walk

Gary Agate, PitCare co-founder and president of the board, set out on a mission to walk 1,300 miles from Pitcairn, PA to Orlando, FL. He began his journey on September 2, 2019 and continued to walk for 74 days (with days of rest here and there).

His goal all along had been to inspire the community of Pitcairn, especially the kids, that you can do anything you set your minds too - to inspire them to set goals and reach for their dreams - it will take hard work, but with perseverance, determination, and faith you can accomplish what may seem impossible!

On November 16, 2019, Gary achieved his goal of walking to Florida when we he crossed into Orlando, welcomed by friends and family to celebrate this huge achievement with him.

Along Gary's journey, funds were raised to support the mission and vision of PitCare. To date, a total of approximately $95,000 has been raised and funds continue to trickle.

HUGE thank you to all those who supported through words of encouragement, prayers, hospitality, meals, and donations. We are grateful and humbled by your generosity.

Pitcare Community Testimonials

PitCare Inc. is a valuable asset to Pitcairn. PitCare has and continues to help many families in this financially depressed community. The youth in Pitcairn are supported to reach their life goals by this organization. I personally have a vested interest in PitCare. My family and I have been assisted by this organization. I am extremely grateful for their care and support.

Today I was at the door as the children were leaving our summer reading program and telling each one to have a good weekend and see them on Monday. We had packed each child a weekend snack bag filled with healthy treats and put one in each of their PitCare bags as they were leaving.One little boy took two steps out and turned around, came back, threw his arms around my waist and gave me a huge hug. No words were needed. I love knowing we are making a difference to our children here in Pitcairn.
