Walking to Florida from Pitcairn is a huge endeavor and Gary will likely face many obstacles and challenges, but his message to the youth of Pitcairn (and really all of us) is that by setting goals big or small and dreaming dreams, we can accomplish anything through hard work and determination (and sometimes a little help from our friends)!

We all face obstacles in our life and challenges that can sometimes put our dreams on hold. Gary wants to show that with perseverance you can push through even when your goal seems unattainable.

By walking to Florida, Gary is also raising needed funds to continue the work of PitCare.

In order to maintain the library and community center, continue to run the food pantry, offer after school programming, continue our Girls Clubs and offer mentoring, we need funding. For each mile he walks and every dollar he raises, PitCare has the ability to continue to live out their mission in Pitcairn, PA.

Would you consider joining Mr. Gary in his journey? Click on the link above to give to this extraordinary goal and help us make a difference in Pitcairn.

To date we have raised around 34% of our $100,000 goal! We are continually humbled by your generosity. There is still lots of time to donate! Please consider jumping on board and joining the journey!

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.
