Running the Country and Educating about GMOs

Father and 15-year old son run 3,000 miles across the USA in support of a GMO free food supply.


David Wilcox and his father, Brett, launched their run on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 11AM. From Huntington Beach Pier in California to New Jersey, they are the first father & teen son team to make the cross country run. But the mission wasn’t to just run cross country. They went running and educating about GMOs and the benefits of going GMO-free.

How flipping awesome is that?

On their blog they report:

January 18, 2014 – July 19, 2014
150 Running Days
183 Total Days or 6 months and 2 days

David ran in six pairs of shoes and his father, Brett in four pairs of shoes.

Over the six months they were on the road, they were on their feet for many more miles than the 2965 officially recorded.

You can find some pretty cool photos and all the stats on their blog.

What an amazing way to stand up, speak out and tell the people of the USA about making our country GMO FREE!

Thank you!!! Thank you!!!! Thank you David and Brett Wilcox what you accomplished is remarkable!

The run is over but you can still donate to their efforts and support this cause and the ones fighting for it.
