Unlike The Proclaimers, Cassie Meador did not walk 500 miles solely for love.
From April 10 to June 1, Meador, who serves as the artistic director of the Dance Exchange, set out on a 500-mile walk to trace the sources of the energy that powers her home in Takoma, D.C.
Her path took her from Dance Exchange headquarters in Old Takoma through D.C., Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia where she ended up at a mountain range that was broken down due to mountaintop removal.
You can look deeper into her journey and hear stories from along the road on her website where she documented the trip.
Dance Exchange is also trying to raise $10,000 by June 22 to offset the costs of the trip.
