What Anna is doing is amazing and we are proud to play a small part in it. We believe her efforts will bring a wave of veterans, active servicemen and women and supporters from around the globe to Hang w/ to show their support for this important cause.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
Hang w/, the live-streaming video social media platform announced today that long distance runner, Anna Judd, will run across America in 100 days and share her cross-country adventure live exclusively on the Hang w/ platform.
The Run Across America launches on Saturday March 22, 2014 at 10 am in Venice Beach, California and is planned to conclude on June 28, 2014 at the Freedom Tower in New York City. Anna will broadcast at 6 am, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 1 pm each day while she makes her way across the Nation.
The Hang w/ app allows users to “hang with” each other via live streaming video and simultaneous chat. Users can follow Anna in the application, and each time Anna broadcasts live, users will receive a notification that “AnnaRunsAmerica wants to Hang w/ you.” Users who tune in can view Anna in live streaming video and communicate with her through live chat.
“This run is about pushing beyond my personal limitations and taking a stand for what I believe is important,” said Anna Judd. “The issues facing America’s veterans must be addressed and Hang w/ is a powerful social media tool that will help me shine a spotlight on these issues. I also have no doubt that my followers on Hang w/ will help me persevere and push through the pain when the run becomes most challenging.”
Already, Anna’s run has brought forth support from many military groups and organizations. In Arizona, Anna will be joined by a local SWAT team. In Texas, a group of Navy Seals have agreed to join Anna on her run. And across the U.S., 17 Chapters of Team RWB (Team Red White and Blue) will join Anna for legs of her run. Team RWB is a national organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity.
“Anna is willing to push herself to the limits of physical endurance to raise awareness for our Nation’s armed service veterans and we plan to support her across the route, both in person and of course on Hang w/,” said Lou Nemec, Team RWB National Athletic Director.
“What Anna is doing is amazing and we are proud to play a small part in it,” said Andrew Maltin, co-founder and CEO of Hang With, Inc. “We believe her efforts will bring a wave of veterans, active servicemen and women and supporters from around the globe to Hang w/ to show their support for this important cause.”
