Jeremy Edge Will Walk To Support Anna House and the Permanently Disabled Jockey’s Fund
What lengths would you go to in order to round up support for a cause you believe in? For Jeremy Edge, the answer is 190 miles… the distance between two of New York’s most popular race tracks: Belmont Park and Saratoga Race Course.
On June 12, 2011 Jeremy Edge will begin a 190-mile walk from Belmont Park in Elmont, NY, through Manhattan and up Route 9 to the Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, NY.
Edge will be walking to support the Anna House, which provides child care for the children of the Belmont and Aqueduct backstretch workers, and the Permanently Disabled Jockey’s Fund.
After climbing Mt. Wilson, a 17-mile hike, with ease, Edge was inspired to take on something even more challenging for a cause. This walk will be significantly longer and will take approximately two weeks to complete.
