The five year project started on June 1st, 2012. On January 12th, 2013 myself and a jogging stroller left the Atlantic Ocean and headed west to the Pacific. On foot 2,594 miles and another 458 in the passenger seat of a car. Ended the journey at Marina, California. This was done to raise awareness concerning alzheimer’s disease and money for the Alzheimer’s Association. The elapsed time for the trip across America was 7 months and 9 days.
The project continued on with purpose. Here are some numbers;
- over 15,000 miles on foot
- over 24,000 miles in a car
- traveled in 16 states
- over $40,000.00 raised for the Alzheimer’s Association
Lots of help, from a lot of folks, in a lot of ways.
