Volunteers Needed for The Longest Walk
Date Published: 04-08-2008

The Longest Walk is looking for acupuncturists along the walking route who would be willing to provide acupuncture to participants of this  incredible five month event.

The Longest Walk south route is being led by American Indian Movement (AIM) co-founder Dennis J. Banks. It is an extraordinary grassroots effort on a national level to bring attention to the environmental disharmony of Mother Earth, sacred site issues, and to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the original longest walk.

Participants are walking from San Francisco to Washington D.C. along two routes and are in need of alternative medical services for everything from sore muscles and injuries to more chronic health problems.  Volunteer to help walkers as they come through your area!

You can check the two walk routes (Northern and Southern) and learn more about The Longest Walk at  The Longest Walk Website.

If the walkers are coming to an area near you on a date that you can volunteer, please send an email to  We're told that the walk doesn't always make the exact location on the exact day that the schedule describes, so flexibility is important for all volunteers!

Come join in and show your support!
