Huntington Beach, CA – Myrtle Beach, SC
On October 2, 2020 we set off on an epic adventure in an attempt to raise awareness & funds for the 501(c)3 nonprofit, Time In A Bottle.
We completed this attempt on May 2, 2021 and raised nearly $100,000 for the nonprofit and grew our social media audience substantially.
We walked through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina.
We walked unsupported with our push cart Timmy and our two dogs Foxi & Nemo. Nemo joined the crew in Arizona when she found is in the Sitgreaves National Forest.
We had quite the experience in each state and things really changed when our social media took off in January. We decided to start posting on TikTok and that is when things really took off! We raised the bulk of our funds during the second half of our walk.
We went through 6 pairs of shoes each, multiple flat tires, slept under a bridge, in people’s homes, behind State Farm, in churches, wineries and wherever else we could find a safe space for the night.
The magic that is Walking Across America is that every person is going to have a different experience. It will always be a unique journey, this is ours.
