My name is Doug Kingsley, and this October, from October 12th to October 25th I will be walking 219 miles from the New York State border in Egremont, MA to the Chatham Lighthouse in Chatham, MA. I am walking in support of Blue H.E.L.P. a non-profit organization who's mission it is to bring awareness to first responder suicide and mental health issues. Please consider making a donation, on my GoFundMe or directly on their website. Please follow my progress and consider getting involved as I embark on this journey.

"Your front is your twelve. Your heart, your face, your head. Your twelve.
We've got your twelve. So do your friends, co-workers and family. More importantly, you've got your twelve.
