“Ocean 2 Ocean”, the accomplished run across America by Bali raised – Environmental Activist Sam Bencheghib

On July 26th 2019, one of our very own Bali kids took on a monumental challenge; To run across America, NYC to LA – all for the awareness of the marine plastic pollution crisis and protecting the oceans. His 160 day running journey began at the Atlantic Ocean and concluded recently on the 2nd of February, after finally reaching the Pacific Ocean! With the accomplishment of a whopping 4,830 km and crossing through 13 U.S states, the adventure ignited a national conversation movement with outreaches to local communities and schools, initiating clean ups as well as documenting the entire journey in which was supported by his co-founded organization Make a Change World, Parley and Adidas running.
