Bonnaroo 2013 – My Top 5 Acts

Run Coast 2 Coast

DID YOU KNOW, MORE PEOPLE HAVE CLIMBED MOUNT EVEREST THAN HAVE RUN ACROSS AMERICA!? 

Exciting news! Noah Coughlan, who is running from coast-to-coast (for the 2nd time!) to raise $$ and awareness for Batten Disease Support & Research, will be taking me with him! The day/time and place is yet to be determined, so stay tuned!! 

In the meantime, check out this website and offer your support! http://runcoast2coast.com/ 

In 2011, Noah Coughlan became 222nd individual to accomplish the feat of crossing America on foot. In 2013, he runs again, attempting to become only the 27th person ever to run across America twice. This time he runs solo and unassisted with no support crew. Why? It is vitally important to exhaust every resource, to explore every avenue to help find a cure for Batten Disease. Batten is a very rare genetic neurological degenerative brain disease which strikes infants and children. There is no known cure….yet. But there is HOPE. We love HOPE!
