July 21, 2015 Activity Update – Nebraska / Iowa border crossed

Aprylle-on-the-border-iowa-nebraska Aprylle Gilbert's Coast to Coast Run For Disadvantaged Kids
continued TUE with her running across the 'Bob Kerrey Bridge'
from NE into IA. Pictures with Aprylle, Jose', her "Lifeline"
support driver, Marcia Kuiper, Exec Dir. US Route 6 NE
& some running fans and supporters at the event.
She then ran along Historic US 6 – Broadway in Co Bluffs IA
(Aprylle chose to 'run' "The Bob" to cross the MO River
to maintain her "run" & replicate the original route, since she
was not allowed to 'run' the I-480 bridge; which replaced
the Douglas Street/AkSarBen bridges of the past.  Aprylle plans to return to Omaha to visit the Child Saving Institute and Boys Town to talk with the kids.)

July 15, 2015 Activity Update – US Route 6 – Sutton, NE


We have a coast-to-coast, Long Beach to Cape Cod, Route 6 Runner due in Sutton on Wednesday evening, July 15th. Aprylle Gilbert left Long Beach May 11th and has been targeting 30 miles a day. She will be in Hastings tonight, Tuesday and you can see her on Highway 6 heading east tomorrow. We plan on having a gathering at the Allegro Wolf Wednesday evening to meet her – time and details to be posted as we figure out her schedule. The plan is to bring Subway sandwiches and a few salads/desserts. The Fox Hollow Motel is putting her and her driver up Wednesday night. 

Check out her facebook page, twitter feed, website etc. The "Aprylle" spelling helps the search engines. 

This is a fund raiser for a children's organization in San Jose. She is a professional singer with a few albums and a youtube presence. I'm listening to her now. 

Watch this space for more info and plan on coming out to meet a real cross-country runner.
