DALLAS May 4, 2007

On January 1, 2008, the 4,913 mile journey of the organizers and volunteers of the LibertyWalk will begin with one step, with each mile symbolizing every word in the United States Constitution. During the 185-day event which departs from Austin, Texas, LibertyWalk will remain non-partisan, and participants will cover 20 states, averaging 26.5 miles per day or a little over a marathon each day, until returning to conclude in Austin on Independence Day, July 4, 2008.

The shape of a star, symbolizing "hope," will form the points of the travel. Within each leg of the star, the charitable LibertyWalk will be creating awareness about a specific project, and current issues the United States faces regarding each project, while raising money for local charities nationwide.

Projects of the star include:

. Awareness
. Civil Rights
. Veteran's Rights
. Peace
. Equality
. Poverty
. Education
. Environment
. Constitutional Rights
. Immigration

At each of the five points of the star, rallies will be held, creating a platform for all citizens to speak to the nation regarding projects just completed or those about to begin.

Rally Dates And Locations:

Austin, TX (Kickoff): Jan. 1, 2008
Tallahassee, FL: Feb. 16, 2008
Washington, DC: Mar. 23, 2008
Green Bay, WI: May 3, 2008
Lincoln, NE: May 31, 2008
Austin, TX (Return): July 4, 2008

Says founder and organizer Cody Lunsford, "We are just regular people that care about our country. Our goal is that all U.S. citizens will participate and get involved. This is a perfect opportunity for the people of our great nation to stand up and be heard."
