I have chosen the charity, it is Save the Children. I am excited with this joint effort to raise $ for an orphanage in Sudan.
I want to thank Detail King for their incredible support and sponsorship (and for creating this You Tube video)
In October/November 2015 I will leave from Key West FL on a XC run to Alaska (mostly barefoot, only sandals when needed) to bring awareness and raise funding to build an orphanage in South Sudan. There are thousands of children that have been orphaned, so sad.
Jared, a good friend I met while hiking the AT is joining for at least some of this journey. It will be good to have his company. He understands the purpose of the journey and is just as passionate about the cause. We will be doing this unsupported, no trailer van. I will be using the jogging stroller from last year to hold clothes, tent, sleeping bag and food. I have an attachment that will fit around my waist so I can “pull” it the stroller, not only “push” it.
I have been working since the finishing the App Trail to purchase gear, supplies and save $ for food. I pretty much have everything I need and just working on the last few details, like getting a passport for when I hit Canada / BC.
This will be just under 7,000 miles. Hoping to do this in 280 days or less.
Thank you for your support and for following.
