Aprylle’s RUN ACROSS AMERICA to Provincetown MA (3,652 miles) will be placed in the record books – NO PERSON has ever accomplished this previously. TEAM APRYLLE projects that Aprylle will cross the Finish Line of “Aprylle Gilbert’s Historic Charity Run 2015” along US Route 6 in PROVINCETOWN MA on TUE – SEP 15. NOTE: Aprylle’s personal Facebook page known as “Aprylle Dawn” now has over 5,000 friends and followers.
The GOOD NEWS is that so many are interested in Aprylle, her Mission and Cause for Kids: the bad news is that the Facebook geeks will not allow her to ‘confirm’ any more friends.
We are working on that – know anybody that can help us
