Update on Jonathon Stalls' KivaWalk Across America

Welcome to California, Jonathon!

With over 220 days on the road, more than 2,800 miles traveled, and less than three weeks until his final walk into San Francisco, Jonathon crossed the California/Nevada border last week on his KivaWalk adventure across the country.

Jonathon reaches San Francisco on Saturday, November 13th and we are inviting the entire Kiva Community in the Bay Area to join us for a mini "Kiva Walk" through the city before coming together for a homecoming celebration at the Presidio Sports Basement. This is an opportunity to pay tribute to someone who has committed nearly a year of his life to help spread Kiva's mission. He has gone above and beyond and is a wonderful example to us all!

The mini "Kiva Walk":

The San Francisco KivaWalk will start at 9:00 AM on Saturday, November 13th, at the Ferry Building (located at the intersection of Market Street and the Embarcadero). For those wishing to do a half-walk, you can meet Jonathon around 12:00pm at Ocean Beach off of the Great Highway (intersection of Fulton Street).

Walking space is limited, please email Jonathon Stalls at by Nov. 10th if you intend to participate. All are welcome to join us in celebration at Sports Basement at 3pm!

The Homecoming Celebration

The Homecoming Celebration will take place at the Presidio Sports Basement from 3:00pm - 6:00pm and all are welcome to join! Entrance is free and guests will receive a 10% discount on anything purchased at the store during our event, and an additional 10% of all purchases will be donated to Kiva!  

We hope to see you all there!
