Hello, everyone. First, let me say THANK YOU so much for taking the time and consideration to support me along this journey.

On June 19th, I will begin running across the USA from San Francisco, CA to New York City, NY. During this 3,290 mile journey, I will be supporting the National Parks Foundation, raising funds and awareness for the preservation and conservation of America's wild areas.

As Americans, we are incredibly blessed by so much diverse beauty in our own back yards. I believe that it's worth fighting for, it's worth protecting, and absolutely worth appreciating and enjoying. So I aim to see as much of it as possible while running across this vast, magnificent land, and share the experience with anyone and everyone.

Preserving our National Parks and wild areas is a battle that will never stop, but one that must continue to be fought. Aside from funds needed for food and water, all donations raised will go directly to the National Parks Foundation. Through your donation, you can help support my cross-country run and our National Parks through education and conservation/cleanup projects.

Lastly, if you can't donate, I still love ya and highly encourage you to go outside. Go to a park. Take a hike. Climb some rocks. Jump in a creek. Pick up some trash. Volunteer or get involved with local cleanup projects...OR...Come run with me!? I would love to meet, talk to, and run/walk with anyone and everyone. 

"This land was made for you and me." 

Thank you. I love you.
