Knoxville News said this about the Take the Walk Challenge:
the Walk is literally taking steps to end poverty and HIV/AIDs in

on tour or in self-organized groups, and walk one mile. For every
mile walked by participants, Hanson donates a dollar to one of five
causes the walker can choose from: drilling clean water wells, providing
drugs to HIV-positive mothers, building schools, donating a pair
of TOMS Shoes and providing access to doctors.
