What You Give Out Comes Back – The Story of Coast2Coast FTK

In 2014, Norman Horn embarked on a 6 1/2 months walk across the United State to raise awareness and funding to benefit the pediatric cancer community at Hershey Children’s Hospital.

Along his journey, he raised $56,000, spoke to many large groups, and held 31 live media interviews. The physical accomplishment was significant, not only for him, but for those he was also fundraising for.

This cross-country trek was deeply transformative for him as a person. Norman will share the challenges and surprised he encountered on the road, stories of the people he met, and that if you set out to do good things, lend a hand and help others, the favor will be returned.
