Patriot Ledger Features Elizabeth Stone House Walker

Quincy man walks from Yankee Stadium to Fenway Park for charity

David Spillane of Quincy was recognized at Fenway Park on Saturday for his 209-mile fundraising walk from Yankee Stadium to raise money for the Elizabeth Stone House for survivors of domestic violence.

The 64-year-old lawyer took the field before the game between the Red Sox and Yankees to celebrate his latest long-distance walk.

He left the Bronx on Sept. 18 and averaged about 20 miles a day. The walk took 439,000 steps.

Last November, Spillane walked from Stockbridge to Boston in tribute to James Taylor’s “Sweet Baby James.” That effort raised more than $50,000 for Elizabeth Stone.

Spillane hopes to raise $50,000 on his baseball walk. A fundraiser will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Alba restaurant in Quincy center. Tickets are $25 each and available at the door.
