DNash Walkathon

I'm walking. Yes WALKING!!! From Chicago to the White House, Washington, starting Friday, August 4, 2017. My goal is to bring awareness to the need for resources and programs for our children in the inner city. With gun violence plaguing Chicago and many poor neighborhoods throughout the country, it is imperative we implement alternative options for children to spend their free time instead of being in the streets in harms way. I've founded Replace Guns With Hammers as one initiative to provide training to pursue a trade and network with positive mentors who were once in at-risk situations. I'm very serious about giving back to my community & using my own life as a testimony. I was incarcerated for 8 years and recently completed 4 years of successful probation. Thank God! That's right 12 years of bondage!!! I was inspired by a book written by Nelson Mandela, A Long Walk to Freedom, in which he writes about his 27 years of imprisonment. Back to the walk, it's 672 miles from Chicago to the White House. Walking will take 223 hours. Walking 10 hours a day will approximately take 22.3 days, at roughly about 10 - 12 hours a day. I would love & appreciate your support. Whether it be money, resources, or connections throughout the journey it is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Demetrius Nash aka DNashIG: @dnash425
