Building Homes For Heroes® Events

Alan's Journey 2017 - Run AC


About the Campaign

My goal is to run across America, beginning in May, and to use this journey to raise more than $50,000 for the Building Homes For Heroes organization. It is my way of trying to show appreciation and gratitude for those who so bravely, and unselfishly, serve our country. Please join me in making a contribution to this organization that gifts homes, mortgage free, to disabled veterans. Thank you for your generosity and support!


About Alan

  1. 57 years old
  2. Height - 6'0"
  3. Weight - 161 pounds
  4. Home town - Concord, NH (born and raised in North Carolina)
  5. Married for 32 years 
  6. Two daughters
  7. Retired 
  8. Attempted an unsupported run across America in the summer of 2015. Ran 952 miles in 39 days before exhaustion and poor route decisions forced me to end my journey
  9. Fully realize the odds are stacked against him for a second transcon attempt, but at least I have the benefit this time of someone following me with a support vehicle and I will not have to push my gear in a stroller. This should be a tremendous help. Looking forward to the challenge. 
  10. My trip is self-funded. None of the contributions made to Building Homes For Heroes are used to support me, nor the expenses I incur.
