Dr. Nicholas Ashill shares an update with the AUS community

Posted by AUS blog on Sep 14, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Greetings from Ohio!

Many of you are aware that I was undertaking a three-month run across the United States of America, a very serious ultra-marathon run from Los Angeles to New York.

On August 2, 2017, after running 3,941 kms, my dream to run from Los Angeles and New York to raise awareness of a lung disease known as pulmonary fibrosis came to an abrupt halt. I had three weeks left to run 922 kms to New York. At 8:30 that Wednesday morning, I was deliberately hit by a pickup truck when running on the shoulder of Highway US 40 approximately 20 miles west of Columbus, Ohio.  The vehicle did not stop and the driver is yet to be found. The accident was widely covered in the media, such as on 10TV, the New Zealand Weekend Herald and ABC6.
