The purpose of the walk is to raise awareness of how making steps towards leading healthier lives can help reduce the likeliness of contracting cancer and other fatal diseases. Along the walk I hope to promote this message as I loudly as I can through local media and other outlets.

If you would like to interview me along the walk across America then please email me at to make it happen.

Below is the list of my interviews so far:
