Walking Across the U.S.

3,081 Miles for Climate

On June 12, 2021, I completed an almost 7 month walk across America. The journey from the Pacific to the Atlantic was a fundraiser for climate action, a protest against fossil fuels, and an effort to reduce my carbon footprint. With the support of countless donors, the walk raised a total of $21,155 for the Sunrise Movement.

The walk was a roller coaster of intense beauty and joy, stress and fear, challenges and problem solving, and I could not have done it without my supporters. To my friends and family, the hundreds of kind strangers, and the growing network of folks who came together over the hope for a green future – thank you for making this possible.

Covid-19 Response

My daily interactions were significantly lower (sometimes none) than they would have been in my everyday life. I was mostly quarantined as I hiked and camped alone for the majority of seven months. I committed to traveling safely and responsibly.

I Vowed To:

  • Maintain 6 feet distance
  • Always wear a mask indoors and in public spaces
  • Get tested and remain in place if experiencing any symptoms.


100% of funds donated to Sunrise Movement.
