I flew out of New York to start my run in SF! I can’t believe it’s already here. It feels surreal, and I’ll get moments where it’ll hit me that I’m one step closer to starting my journey. I’d like to take this moment to thank everyone who has supported me. Without your assistance, I wouldn’t be able to embark on this journey. Thank you.
More on how the run works, this handy YouTube video does a great job explaining it. Visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvuFqD1ZJ0M to understand how my team will conquer the 4,000+ miles collectively! We have 10 rest days which we will use as service days: delivering chemo bags, visiting patients, touring a facility, and awarding scholarships to further higher education. In order to ensure that all the money we raise goes directly back to the cause of supporting young adults with cancer, our meals and lodging are donated generously by local organizations. We’ll be primarily staying at churches. Our supplies (e.g. GUs, KTape) are given to us by the respective companies, facilities local to a 4Ker prior to sendoff, or generous individuals while on the road. Truly, 4K shows how teamwork can accomplish so much more than one person can in a day!
Naturally, as this is my first flight out west, I had to take some photos on the airplane. The terrain is so different! I saw mountains, radius plots, maybe a desert?, and of course, the bay that leads to San Francisco. The texture of the mountains were just incredible, and I stared at them, mesmerized for quite a while. Stay tuned for my adventures in SF prior to sendoff!
