A Pilgrimage Across Europe

A Pil­grim­age Across Europe is a multi-year trek from Spain to Roma­nia to raise aware­ness about dia­betes and the link between exer­cise and dia­betes man­age­ment. On April 1, 2013, Bob Scheidt will fly across the Atlantic to Spain and set out on foot, leav­ing behind his trusty motorhome and car­ry­ing all of his worldly pos­ses­sions on his back. Along the way, he will visit hos­pi­tals, schools, and camps to present a com­pre­hen­sive dia­betes edu­ca­tion program.

Bob will be fol­low­ing The Way of St. James, or El Camino de San­ti­ago. The sched­ule is as follows:

  • 2013 — North­ern Spain and part of cen­tral France
  • 2014 — Remain­der of France and all of Switzerland
  • 2015 — Ger­many, Aus­tria and part of Hungary
  • 2016 — Remain­der of Hun­gary and all of Romania
