Hello Friends,

My name is Jim Downs, aka Big Jim. I am a nationally recognized addiction recovery advocate, founder and CEO of Big Jim's Walk Foundation.  
I was in active addiction for over 34 years. I was healed and delivered from drugs and alcohol by the grace and mercy of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Praise God!
Big Jim's Walk Foundation is a vision from God that was given to me while I was in Recovery. I humbled myself and surrendered my life to the Lords will. 
Since then, God is doing those incredible things only God can do in ones life. Last year, I walked across America bringing the message of HOPE in Jesus Christ and AWARENESS to the EPIDEMIC of ADDICTION. The walk was a huge success. The walk encouraged thousands to get clean and sober, to let God into their lives, and to bring communities together , united under the Lords umbrella of Love to combat this horrible epidemic. 
It was such a huge success, we are moving forward with Gods blessings. We are a licensed Non-Profit Organization in the State of Florida but we are ready to take it to the next level.
2019 promises to be even more miraculous as I, Big Jim, starting January 1, 2019, will be taking the same message around America on an almost 14,000 mile bicycle trip to all lower 48 state capitals. This journey is to do 4 things. Bring the message of hope in Jesus Christ, awareness to the epidemic of addiction,  to film a full length documentary movie called Testimonies on the Trail, and raise the funds to purchase property to build the first of many free long term faith based bible teaching recovery programs called CAMP REDEMPTION. 
In order for us to do this we must first become a federally recognized and licensed Non-Profit organization. To do that is a long process with business plans, board member organization, etc. We have completed everything and are now ready to file for our 501c3 license. 
NOW WE REACH OUT FOR YOUR HELP MOMENTARILY. 
Volunteers have put in countless hours of hard work free to the foundation. They have graciously donated their time and talents to see this through. Why? Because they know how important this movement is and what an incredible impact it has already made in the nation and in thousands of lives. 
To learn more about me and to hear my testimony follow the link  below to where I was interviewed by Omar Pinto with the SHAIR PODCAST, an international outreach based out of Costa Rica.
