Give today to support Gary as he walks from Pitcairn to Florida!

"launching dreams step by step"


Did you know...

  • For healthy activity, we are encouraged to walk 10,000 steps per day, which is about five miles.
  • It would take the average person two hours to walk five miles.
  • The distance from Pittsburgh to Florida is approximately 1,200 miles.
  • It would take you 460 hours to walk 1,200 miles; that's about 60, 8 hour working days.
  • ...and Gary Agate is going to do it!!!!

This September, Gary will be walking from Pittsburgh to Florida. He recognizes he is in the fourth quarter of life, nearing the RED ZONE! He wants to make a difference and finish strong while he still has the energy to do so.

Living in Pitcairn, PA presents him with the privilege of many opportunities to talk with the youth in the community. By doing something extraordinary and challenging, like walking to Florida, he is setting an example to the younger generation.

We all have challenges and obstacles to overcome in life and by walking, Gary hopes to inspire the youth to face their challenges and inspire them to persevere through them to reach their goals and fulfill their dreams. As Gary walks, step by step, he hopes his journey can launch the dreams of many, especially children and youth. Encouraging us to dream big and GO FOR IT!

Another important goal of this adventure is to raise funds for PitCare. In order to maintain the library and community center, continue to run the food pantry, offer after school programming, and open a coffee shop sometime in the near future, we need funding. For each mile he walks and every dollar he raises, PitCare has the ability to continue to live out their mission in Pitcairn, PA.
