Man’s Trek From Maine to NC to Help Daughter With Genetic Disorder

A 41-year-old father from England arrived in Raleigh barefoot after walking all the way from Maine. Chris Brannigan is nearing the end of his 1,200 mile journey. His destination is Jacksonville, North Carolina, but his goal is raising money to help his daughter.

Hasti is 9 years old. She has a rare genetic disorder which causes seizures and affects her growth. Brannigan’s walk is a push to raise awareness and funds for gene therapy to help Hasti and other children in similar situations.
