  • I commit to preparing myself physically, spiritually, and mentally for this walk through physical preparation, prayer, and self-care so that I can love creation with each step we take.
  • I commit to arriving at the Walk (at the determined location, whether Louisville or one of the meet-up locations) on my own and on time.
  • I commit to fundraising for the Walk for at least $3 per mile that I walk to support the costs for food, medical supplies, permits, travel scholarships, and other associated expenses (about $30 per day).
  • I commit to telling the story of the Walk and the movement for climate justice with my communities (online, church, friends, family) before, during, and after the Walk. I also commit to telling the story at General Assembly if and as I am able.
  • I commit to listening to my body, spirit, and mind during the Walk and to taking self care seriously.
  • I commit to the goals of the PCUSA Walk for a Fossil Free World:
    • To encourage the PC(USA) 223rd General Assembly to divest from fossil fuels so that we no longer profit from the exploitation of the Earth and the most vulnerable communities
    • To uplift, learn from, support, and create communities of resilience and resistance in response to climate change
