Story

My name's Ben Hammond and my next endurance dancing challenge is to dance every step across the USA. 

After some years spent settling down with my wonderful partner Trishna, taking on a full time job and battling countless injuries that stopped me in my prancing tracks, 2018 will see me resurrect my long-distance dancing ambitions as I attempt to dance every step from LA to New York.  To start off I will be attempting to dance the length of the famous Route 66, through eight US states all the way from Santa Monica to Chicago.  Unlike my previous challenges, every step will be done under my own steam - pulling and pushing everything I need to stay alive, healthy and on track through the great heat and wilderness of the USA.  For all the details please visit http://www.planetprancer.com. 

This time I'm raising funds for Anti-Slavery International because to me modern-day slavery - such as human trafficking, forced labour, debt bondage, child slavery or descent-based slavery - is one of the biggest evils that exists today.  I believe everyone should have the right to live a life free from servitude, to determine their own future and to create and follow their own dreams, just as I am lucky enough to be able to do.

So please do help motivate my moves as I train and prepare for this dance marathon of epic proportions by sponsoring me to dance a mile across the USA.  Thanks for every penny you're able to give.  

Take care,

Ben
