Calvary Captain Countdown – 12 days

Tabitha Beck & George Newbury are our Walkathon power couple! Tabitha got her introduction to the Walkathon through Calvary staff member Heather Laing, and Tabitha & George have been walking together for Calvary ever since they moved to D.C. in 2003.

They were hooked after their first Walkathon. The sight of thousands of people gathered on the Mall, walking to end homelessness, was a moving moment for both of them. Why else do they keep walking year after year? “It’s a no-brainer!” says Tabitha, “the Walkathon is an easy way of not only showing your support for Calvary, but also uniting with an entire community of people in the DC area that is dedicated to homelessness issues.”

Another joint effort they undertook – Tabitha & George ran the Army Ten Miler this October (their first race ever!) so now they are recuperating just in time for the walk in 12 more days.

After eight years, the Walkathon has become a yearly tradition for them. Not only do they love being a part of the great team helping Calvary raise funds for its programs, they also look forward to powering up with donuts at the Carousel the morning of the walk!
