Kentucky’s Dianet Plucinski will walk/run from Louisville to Lexington on June 9 and 10 (Sat and Sun). Dianet’s journey is dedicated to all the women who have died attempting to cross the U.S./Mexican border and in solidarity with the struggle for legalization for the millions of undocumented immigrants who work and live in the United States. Dianet’s efforts will resemble the sacrifices made by all the immigrants who are forced to leave their homeland to build a better future for their families, and it’s done at a time when the Congress start to discuss proposals for real comprehensive immigration reform.
The Miles for a Change will start the morning of June 9 in Louisville; it will follow the US60 Route all the way to Lexington. It will pass Shelbyville and arrive into Frankfort at the end of the day. We will stay overnight in Frankfort and will depart to Lexington on Sunday morning, passing thru Versailles. Thru the weekend we will have rallies in Louisville, Shelbyville, Frankfort, Versailles and Lexington. The walk will be combined with four 5K Runs: leaving Louisville, entering Frankfort, leaving Frankfort, and arriving into Lexington.
Dianet will walk/run the whole route and along the way hundreds of supporters will join her to walk/run portions of the trip. She will rest at the rallies points along the route.
We are looking for Miles for a Change sponsors, supporters, and participants. There are opportunities for corporate sponsors and for individual who could support by sponsoring 1, 5, 10 miles or the whole trip.
