The idea for walking across Massachusetts started with a question:

What does it mean to be a New Englander today?

Along the way, I hope to discover answers to this question, invigorate my body, change my health, and pay tribute to the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, whose love of Massachusetts inspired me to make this journey from the Berkshire Hills to the Cape Cod sea coast to experience what he admired about Massachusetts.
