Anna ran America and Dr. Adler was waiting for her at the finish line! We wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate Anna Judd on the over 3,400 miles she ran across America in support of Veterans. Adler Footcare sponsored her every step of the way and was there when she arrived at One World Trade Center on August 23.
If you haven’t heard about Anna’s run across America yet, she set out from Venice Beach, California on March 22 to run across the United States and raise awareness and support for veterans. She carried 22 rocks in her backpack to symbolize the number of veterans who reportedly commit suicide each day.

Anna has met some amazing people along the way and shares many of her experiences on her blog and Facebook page. As she arrived in NYC amidst the crowd and media frenzy, Dr. Adler found her and invited Anna to Adler Footcare where he provided her with a complimentary consultation. She posted on her Facebook page:
“I'm at Adler Footcare of Greater New York getting my paws checked out. For the last month of my trip my left heel has barely touched the ground. About to find out how much damage I've done. I think it's a lot. Thank you so much to Dr. Adler and his staff for being so friendly and professional. And thank you especially for the [donation] made to Team Red, White & Blue.”
You’re welcome, Anna! It was our pleasure to support your journey. We’ll let Anna share the status of her feet if she wants to, but we were able to help her manage her foot pain and recommend a podiatrist closer to her in California.
We can’t think of a better way to honor Anna’s accomplishment than to share her words from the day after she finished her journey:
“All I can say for now is wow. Too many emotions to sort through, but they all lead back to love for this country, for the earth, for humanity, and for every single person who has touched my heart during my run across America. It has been thousands. I am overwhelmed. I am in total gratitude.”
