The Path to Freedom Tour – Part 3

It’s been an amazing two-week journey for the Path to Freedom Tour riders.

After visiting Charleston, SC, they went on to visit the Penn Center on St. Helena Island, Mitchelville Preservation Project on Hilton Head Island and the Geechee Kunda Center in Riceboro, GA, and the American Beach Museum in Amelia Island, FL.

 


After a short six-mile ride from Little Talbot Island State Park to the St. Johns River Ferry, we were greeted by Val Bostwick, Past President/Director of Friends of the St. Johns Ferry.  On the short ferry ride, Val took a great photo of our team from a higher ground on the ferry and pointed out that the East Coast Greenway sign indicates that the ferry is part of the East Coast Greenway because it serves as a moving bridge to provide connectivity.

Along the way, the experiential learning, spirit of cooperation and daily achievement were profound. Communities warmly welcomed the Tour from end to end. Arriving in St. Augustine, the riders were very appreciative of their experience.

For its unique and inspiring mission, the Tour garnered attention from the press, including several newspaper articles, an interview on Georgia Public Radio, and local news coverage from the Jacksonville/St. Augustine area (below).

Thank you to everyone who assisted the Path to Freedom Tour along the way!
