Jesse and Bruce Walk America

It's like Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure! But wait, this one is Jesse and Bruce. We thought it sounded like an epic mission: Jesse and Bruce Walk America to raise money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Actually, Bruce was unable to partake in the event so Jesse Simmons is solo and just got started on January 6. The route should take 5 months and cover roughly 3,800 miles. Jesse will be filming the entire trip for an upcoming documentary. So everyone can see the progress, Jesse has posted a SPOT Shared page. Jesse plans to hit the “check-in” button a couple times a day. See more or donate to this great cause at http://jesseandbrucewalkamerica.com/
