On June 8th, 2019, I planted my feet in the Atlantic Ocean in Portland, Maine and then turned and began a journey to walk to San Diego, to raise money for homeless veterans.
I'm a veteran myself - I served in the US Marine Corps from 2006-2010, and was deployed in Afghanistan from 2009-2010 - and am passionate about the importance of supporting and providing resources to veterans who are currently unhoused.
I plan on donating any funds raised through my walk to the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Disabled American Veterans - both organizations do great work for our veterans.
I've been fortunate to have lots of support and resources over the last decade, and in that time I've learned that we each have to embrace the awesomeness within us - what I call "Owning Your Gangster".
Any donation is appreciated, and if you'd like to follow my progress on my walk, you can find me at the following.
