The Cobb family “Awareness Tour” is currently making its way through various states to share about our walk across America. Please contact Jonathan/Jennifer at 888.995.8226 or email JuCanFoundation@gmail.com if you would like to bring the Cobb family to your church or organizational event. Our program includes multi-media and each of the family members share brief testimonies of their walk across America.
“You think the only people who are people, are the people who look and think like you. But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger, you’ll learn things you never knew you never knew.” – Pocahontas”
Updated: March/2015: This is a “Tentative” list of states/cities, subject to change due to safety, weather, road construction, schedule, etc. This page is updated often, so please check back for cities/dates. SAFETY is our #1 priority. Delays are to be expected and this list may be altered or changed last minute to place the Cobb family on the safest route possible. Jonathan & Jennifer Cobb will be walking the entire distance, and a few of the family members will take turns walking with them in safer and less congested areas of the path. In certain circumstances, it may be necessary for us to drive around or through a dangerous area to the “safest” walking point. We are thankful for various people/groups who have signed on to run, cycle, and walk along side us in support. #TeamJuCan is a BIG group and we are never alone! There is safety in numbers and the most important aspect of our walk, is to arrive safely at our destination (even if it takes us longer to get there). In addition, local law enforcement and highway patrol will be notified in advance of our location(s) and alert us to potential areas of concern. If you would like to become a #TeamJuCan contact and help with organizing a welcome party and/or fundraiser when we arrive in your city, please email Jennifer or call 888.995.8226.
