Langhorne woman to walk ‘18 Miles for Dave’

Joan Zalot and David Walls met at Holy Family College (now University) in Northeast Philadelphia and graduated together in 1990. They’ve remained friends since then, and when Joan heard about Dave’s recent cancer diagnosis, she knew she had to find a way to help.

Long Beach Island is the 18-mile-long New Jersey barrier island where Joan and her family vacation every summer. Joan decided to challenge herself while helping her friend by collecting pledges and walking the entire length of the island, from Holgate at the south end, all the way to the iconic Barnegat Lighthouse.

Thus “18 Miles for Dave” came to be.
