Suzanne was asked why she is walking, and she replied:
"Why am I walking? I am walking because being a midwife has been one of the greatest good fortunes of my life. I am walking in gratitude for that. I am walking because of all the other midwives in the world who time and again demonstrate commitment, courage and passion beyond anything I can imagine. I am walking because I can’t stop walking until the women and the families of the world are served in a manner that is safe, loving, and just."
