Lifetree discusses getting ‘unstuck’

The event will feature a filmed interview with Kenyon Easton, a man who began a coast-to-coast walk across the country in April 2014. Although he faced multiple hardships from weather and unforeseen complications, Easton says his walk gave him a life-changing perspective.

“I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while,” explains Easton. “I felt if I didn’t grab this opportunity, it wouldn’t happen. I knew I wouldn’t regret it, so I took the leap.”

The hour-long event is free and open to the public. Snacks and beverages are available.
