2024 Granny D Memorial Walk

Save the Date (August 3, 2024)  for the 15th Annual Granny D Walk and Democracy Festival! 

At age 89, Granny D famously walked across the United States to raise public awareness of the need for reforming the way campaigns are funded.  Her efforts later resulted in the McCain-Feingold Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (repealed by SCOTUS in 2010). We have carried on her tradition of walking to bring attention to the ongoing issue of big money politics by holding an annual Granny D Memorial Walk.

This year's walk honoring our founder Doris "Granny D" Haddock will begin near Granny D's home on Cobb Meadow Rd. in Dublin at 9 am (Please plan to park in Peterborough at Riverwalk (48 Grove St.) and be shuttled to the start of the walk).  We'll walk approximately 6.2 miles to Putnam Park in Peterborough for 12 noon where we'll enjoy lunch and the 2024 Democracy Festival!

Can't walk the entire length? We'll have stops along the way for you to join the walk.  You can meet us at Green Grocer at approximately 10:45 or Adams Playground at roughly 11:30.

Please be sure to bring your water bottle, we will have refills available.
