Walker #2 Claire Mellein

I am very excited to say that I will not be traveling alone from San Luis Obispo to San Francisco.

A co-worker and good friend of mine, Claire, will be joining me for the entire

walk

. Claire has a big heart, and has always enjoyed taking long trips on foot, so when I let her know about this event, she immediately asked to join. She is very excited to be able to put her passion towards supporting the children I have told her about countless times.

Claire is from Ventura, CA. She has a massive family that she is very close with. Claire and I work together on the Arroyo Grande Hotshots, which is a 20 person fire crew for the U.S. Forest Service. She is the only girl on the crew. Claire can outrun many of the people on the crew and is usually the one motivating others to work out a second time later on in the day. Good luck finding Claire or myself in the picture above. That is our crew in Arizona. With never failing, positive attitude, she will be a great companion for the trip.
