Telling Stories

Raynold Jackson is a dedicated, repeat GFW walker who hails from Townsend, MA. He has walked in at least five GFWs and aims to be at the starting line again this year on Friday, April 14th!

Though most people walk the 5-mile course loop, Raynold can be seen walking and walking. In 2016 he completed 20 miles on Good Friday while carrying a heavy hiking pack (and it has been said, there is a Kermit the Frog hanging from the pocket). He walks for the self challenge and peace, but also knowing he is making an impact to help those in need at Loaves & Fishes.

It’s probably no coincidence that Raynold appreciates the views on this five-mile course overlooking the Monadnocks, as his main avocation is building and maintaining hiking trails in New England, mostly in New Hampshire. In addition, he can be found carving stone, tending his vegetable garden and volunteering at the Congregational Church of Littleton.

Raynold is looking forward to raising money for Loaves & Fishes by asking his family and friends to sponsor him once again this year. He hopes to raise enough money to bring home a GFW baseball cap (raising $150 or more earns a GFW cap)!

We look forward to seeing Raynold on Friday, April 14th!
