One man's 'Canada to Key West' run to raise awareness for MS

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - Stephen Moyer is running from Canada all the way to Key West, FL, and he's currently in Savannah.

The 50-year-old is running to raise awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. His wife was diagnosed with MS two years ago.

The route so far has taken him through Times Square, Baltimore, Charleston and more.

Once he rests up Thursday night, he's heading down to the Florida coast for the last leg of his journey.

"I wanted to do something that was epic and I loved the movie Forrest Gump. So you see in that movie beautiful scenes of Forrest running in all of these beautiful places, and east to west is not really practical, but north to south sort of made sense," said Moyer.
