Occasionally... [Gandhi] left the farm at 2 A.M., walked the twenty-one miles to town, and returned on foot the same night. One day, he recalls, “I walked fifty miles.” *
On the first Saturday in October, we honor Gandhi’s birthday and his most famous act of civil disobedience. The 1930 Salt March was 241 miles long, and Gandhi spent three weeks walking and spreading his messages of peace and temperance.
The Gandhi Walk is a one-day walk of 10, 25, or 50 miles to the ocean.
Gandhi preached what he practiced. Honor him with three pledges on the day of the walk:
1) Vegetarian for the day. (Vegan if you're hardcore.)
2) Temperance for the day. (No celebratory drinks on the beach.)
3) Celibacy for the day. (Gandhi did it for 40 years.)
You can see the 50-mile 2018 route here.
