About The Event
Join us for a 6-mile supported walk from Dublin to Peterborough in Granny D's honor!
Hosted By NH Rebellion
Walkers will gather at the corner of Cobb Meadow Road and East Harrisville Road in Dublin near Granny D's home and we'll end in downtown Peterborough for a Community Celebration complete with lunch, free Ben & Jerry's ice cream, speakers and entertainment. Come share your stories of Granny D!
Doris “Granny D” Haddock is fondly remembered for walking across the country -- 3,200 miles! -- to bring attention to the need for campaign finance reform. She walked from Los Angeles to Washington, DC: starting in January 1999, when she was 88 years old, and finishing in February 2000, when she was 90. She lived in Dublin, NH and died in March 2010, at age 100. She founded Open Democracy. Our "NH Rebellion" walks continue her legacy.
According to her friend and biographer Dennis Burke, "The important thing Doris Haddock would have you remember was that she was no more special than you, and that you have the identical power and the responsibility to make a difference in the community and the world."
