I owe Tom Hanks a hardy handshake. why? because this whole project is named after his Forrest Gump character. you remember Jenny yelling, “run Forrest, run!” when he’s being chased by bullies. yeah, well, it’s no secret that my beard and long hair resembles later-life Forrest after several months on the road as he ran back and forth across the country.
I REALLY would like Tom Hanks to join me on the first day of the run when I leave from New York City on Sept. 9. but i need everyone’s help. i don’t know Mr. Hanks. maybe you do? or maybe you have some suggestions on how we can get him to join the run? it would really help me get exposure for the run and increase donations, i’m certain of that.
watch the video below, and if anyone has any information, or if you’re seeing this yourself, Tom, please please please contact Luke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
