Jack made it! After traveling nearly 3,000 miles on foot, Jack arrived in Monterey, CA on August 26, 2013.
On January 12, 2013 Jack Fussell started
running from Skidaway Island State Park near Savannah, Georgia and didn't stop until he reached Monterey, California! At 62 years-old and after 10
years of training – Jack is one of four men over the age of 60 to take on this journey,
the fourth documented person to run from Georgia to California and most
importantly, the first to run across the country for Alzheimer’s disease!
Jack's hope for his trek across the land was not only to help call attention to
a disease that is increasing rapidly, but to also successfully campaign to raise
funds for the Alzheimer’s Association. Although Jack has completed his journey, you can still rally behind the cause he has worked so hard for. Show your support by making a donation below and be sure to keep up with him at www.acrosstheland2013.com.
