Brett Wilcox is a therapist in Sitka, Alaska. He lives there with his wife, son, and daughter. Brett’s 15 year old son, David, a runner himself, proposed the idea of the two of them running across the United States to raise awareness of the negative effects of GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms) in our food supply. They accomplished this earlier this year. I talk to Brett about how he thinks running effects mental health as a clinician, how running effects family life, and how becoming an activist to raise awareness of GMO’s came about.
Brett can be contacted through his website Runningthecountry.com. His book, We’re Monsanto: Feeding the World Lie After Lie is available on the website or through Amazon. His family’s run across the U.S. was incredibly expensive. If anyone can donate to help defray the expenses, please do so through the website as well.
