Anna Runs America

Posted: Updated:
START, La. (KNOE 8 News)-  Anna Judd is not running a routine morning jog, she is running across America.

The run is meant to bring attention to the problems veterans face  when they return home.

Most of those problems anna has dealt with herself but she has a way to take her mind off of them.

Anna started her journey in her home state of California March 22. Her destination is New York.

She has traveled more than 1,700 miles by foot. She says every stride is for every veteran left with no help.

She believes the current state of the VA system is not fair to those who have served this country, but it is an opportunity to raise awareness.

Rep. Vance McAllister agrees and says lawmakers need to do something to restore and improve services for our veterans.

Anna has suffered injuries to her hip and right ankle on Hwy 80. She has 1,300 more miles to travel before getting to her destination, New York.
