GREENSBORO, N.C. — The “female Forrest Gump” plans to run through Greensboro on Tuesday as part of a cross-country run to raise awareness about veterans’ issues.

Anna Judd plans to jog through Greensboro as part of a run across the country. Organizers said she left from Venice Beach on March 22 and is heading to New York City.

She said she is running across America to raise awareness about the needs of veterans. She reportedly runs about 30 miles a day, and has already run over 2,700 miles.

Organizers call her the “female Forrest Gump” and said Judd is an artist and performer from Los Angeles.

Thousands of people have joined her along the route from California to North Carolina, and more are expected as she runs through the Eastern Seaboard, according to organizers.

She has 650 miles left to go, and her run is planned to end with a massive art performance and run into New York City with Freedom Tower being the final destination.

    Anna you are more than welcome to come stay with Bo as you pass through town. If you are running through GSO you better stay low and run in a serpentine pattern.
