how did the walk africa start?
One day in February, Brian and Nell were walking from their home in the village Uriri to the closest town to go shopping for groceries. On the way, they joked, "Hey, we could walk across Kenya." The seed had been planted, and from that moment the planning began. 

Less than two weeks after they completed their trek across Kenya, and still sore from rucking, Brian and Nell were talking about Meze Fresh, a Mexican burrito bar in Kigali, and the best restaurant in the world. Brian sent a text message to Nell, half-joking, saying "Ya know we could just walk to Meze Fresh." Nell responded "I'm down" and The Walk Africa was born.

From a mindless suggestion and a half-joking text message, Brian and Nell will be traverse on-foot the entiretly of East Africa!
Why are we walking?
People say we're crazy; we say thank you. Our walk may seem silly to some, but to us there is no better expression of unity, compassion, and love than embarking on this journey.  
WE WALK to raise money and awareness for Arrive and the kids Arrive supports. We are using our own love for the outdoors and health to empower not only ourselves but others to shine bright. We will serve as healthy role models for our kids and people around the world who follow us on our journey. We are challenging ourselves in order to challenge others to get involved and learn more about Arrive. We're doing something we’re passionate about - walking - for something we’re passionate about - helping the most vulnerable kids in Kenya. 

WE WALK to engage local people along the way and to learn more about the country in which we work. As we learn from them, we will also educate  about Arrive’s work -  enabling them to help the most vulnerable kids in their own society through awareness and opportunity. Connecting and networking with “the real” Kenya will help us learn more about where the Arrive kids came from and better relate to, help, and support them.

WE WALK to connect. Everyone around the world walks. In this way, we are all connected. We are using this common medium - walking - to bring communities from around the world together in support of Arrive and empowering more of Kenya’s most vulnerable youth. 

WE WALK to explore, learn, grow, and challenge ourselves at the same time – all aspects of a healthy lifestyle we promote to the Arrive family. As  we walk, we will continually ask ourselves: what would the world look like if we viewed the success of others as our own? This mindset will expose unity, compassion, and love within ourselves, in the people we meet along the way, and everyone around the world who follows our journey.
