In the summer of 2000, Stu decided to put his principles of endurance to the test, embarking on a 3,000-mile journey from San Diego to New York City. He finished in a remarkable 56 days! That’s more than two marathons a day for 56 consecutive days! His “Journey Across America” raised over $175,000 which was donated to the Anthony Robbins Foundation as start-up funding for the original the Global Youth Leadership Summit.
