Canada to Key West is a 2,500-mile walk to raise awareness about the impact of extreme weather events on people with disabilities.
Canada to Key West kicked off on June 21, 2019, the day of the summer solstice. For this event Drs. Marcalee and Craig Alexander will walk a 2,500-mile route making stops at rehabilitation hospitals, and other locations, to engage with academic partners about the need for more effective climate change health mechanisms for people with disabilities during extreme weather events, such as hurricanes, floods, polar vortices and heat waves.
COVID-19 Update: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have stopped the walk in Rocky Mount, North Caroline but plan to resume in February 2021, provided it is safe, of course!
