It’s Time to Step It Up!

Hi Everyone!

My name is Jesse VanOsdol, and I’m getting ready for a trip to walk across America to raise money for the Burn Center at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.

Yup, you guessed it. I was a patient there a year ago. You can read all about my story on the About Jesse page. I’m excited to start my hike on November 17, 2011. Right now I’m finishing some schooling and training at Universal Technical Institute with Mercedes-Benz in the Los Angeles area and making plans to start my trip.

You can follow my progress on my blog as I get ready and then track my route across the country as I start hiking. I’ll be using these posts and some cool things like video to help keep you updated. I’d love to hear back from you–and who knows how many of you I may meet as I am hiking?!

Just so you know I’m legit, here’s a link to my page on Riley’s site. If you are able, you can also donate to my “event” here. Thanks so much, and I can’t wait to get started!

Step It Up!
