MILES FOR
MEDICAL DEBT

walking 100+ miles to help

relieve medical debt

ALEXA'S CHRONIC
ILLNESS STORY

friendly.jpg

At 19 years old, Alexa first fell ill. At 20, she was over a quarter of a million dollars in medical debt. A uniquely American injustice, no one should worry about their medical bills as they figure out how to manage an illness. Now she's looking to help others who are in deep medical debt.

 

THE WALK

On May 10th 2022, Alexa's going to walk from Central Park in Manhattan to Greenport Village on the tip of the North Fork of Long Island. The goal is to walk those 100+ miles

non-stop. Every mile she walks will be sponsored by individuals who are looking to improve the lives of those who have battled extensive medical debt. Additional elite sponsors will help to fund even more good.

 

The chosen recipient of these funds is RIP Medical Debt, an established 501(C)(3) founded to help relieve millions of families of their burdensome medical debt. They do this by purchasing portfolios of debt at discounted rates from collection agencies. This means our dollars are that much more powerful - $1 donated can equal $100 of medical debt relief.
