Update on Aprylle Gilbert-U.S. Route 6 Runner **Entering PA-Expected Sunday**

Dear PA Route 6 Partners, Friends, and Press

Coast-to-Coast U.S. Route 6 Runner, Aprylle Gilbert, is expected to cross the state line from Ohio into PA on Sunday, August 16th. We are keeping a spreadsheet of her tentative schedule along with contacts and establishments who have already been so kind as to offer gratis lodging and meals, press who are interested in interviewing Aprylle, and community organizations that may be interested in welcoming Aprylle as she passes through. Aprylle, along with being a long-distance runner, is a professional musician and advocate for children.

We would like to show Aprylle how excited we are to welcome her to PA. Thus far, Aprylle has had police and fire escorts arranged for her, Mayors, Commissioners and other local government persons welcome her into their towns, counties, and regions. We want Aprylle to know how friendly and welcoming we are in PA but we need your help! Attached you will find a tentative schedule for Aprylle’s journey through the western and central part of the state along with a poster that can be shared and posted. We will be sending out daily updates once Aprylle gets to PA.

Please contact us if you are interested in meeting with Aprylle, are able to provide lodging or a meal, want to run or walk with Aprylle for a bit, or would like to support Aprylle and her efforts for children. Any organization that provides lodging (Aprylle is happy to be hosted in-home by families) or meals for Aprylle and her support driver, will be given a 6 month, no-cost, listing on the U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association website. Follow Aprylle’s progress and see her adventures at: and
