Matt, Vickie heading south

Matt Gregory walks with his goat, Vickie, along Martin Way in Lacey on Tuesday, Oct. 5, 2010, before stopping to stay at a friend's house in Olympia. The 1,800-mile walk from Bellingham to Los Angeles is designed to raise awareness and money to support cancer research. Gregory's mother suffered from leukemia and died from cancer almost 10 years ago. On this walk, he hopes to raise more than $11,000 to support the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle.
