The purpose of The Run is to help get all 50 states licensed for naturopathic medicine by 2025. This will require a lot of runs in the next 7 years and media attention. The first run is July 7-12, LA (San Pedro) to San Diego, ending at the naturopathic AANP conference.
I began doing these long runs 40 years ago in 1978, the first being a solo run, without a support team from Corvallis, OR to Calgary, Canada. My first run across the USA, in 1984-1985, the media called a “run of conscience.” All of the long runs over the 40 years attracted a lot of media, including the 2011 run across the USA.
