Robert Sweetgall, often called “the real” Forrest Gump because he has walked across America seven times, is the only person to have walked all 50 states (11,208 miles) in 365 consecutive days. In his former life, Robert was an overweight Brooklyn boy, cheesecake lover, high school valedictorian, Dupont chemical engineer and ultra marathoner. Motivated by a family history of heart disease, Robert gave up cheesecake and his chemical engineering job to take his health message on the road, literally, walking his talk across America.
Author of 14 books, Robert has appeared on numerous radio and talk shows, including The Today Show, Evening Magazine and Regis and Kathy Lee Live. Robert has made 4,000 presentations to more than 1 million people worldwide.back to top
