Sacramento Native, Dr. Dennis Godby, is running across America - and actor, director, author Le Var Burton wants to tell you about it.
Burton will be in the city to kickoff a celebration for Godby's cross-country run at a local fundraising dinner April 16 from 5:00-11:00 p.m., at Sacramento's Grand Capitol Ballroom.
Godby will be running 3,250 miles through 90 cities across the country. This is the second coast-to-coast run for Dr. Godby. This time he will be accompanied by sons Isaiah and Jeremiah, and nephew, Jonas Ely.
The doctor's goal is to bring national grass roots attention to options in health care including naturopathic medicine.
The 4-month Run begins in San Francisco on July 17 and ends in Bridgeport, Conn. on Nov. 16 with stops along the way to educate and empower local communities about natural health care options.
Other special guests include Dr. Carl Hangee Bauer, President of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians and Dr. Simon Barker, President of the California Naturopathic Doctors Association.
