“As of tomorrow, I will be more than 1,700 miles in!” says Barrett Keene, Ph.D. ’13, who has been walking from Miami to San Francisco since Jan. 28. He’s raising funds for abandoned children in Haiti and Africa through the Go Walk America project and conducting academic research.
Even through the recent heat waves, Keene continues to walk, and he’s joined by enthusiastic supporters he inspires to get involved along the way.
With each donation of $20, a student receives a uniform required to attend school. Thus far, funds have been raised to support 1,261 school uniforms.
“Please donate at least one school uniform,” requests Keene, in red above. “When you sponsor a school uniform, you support three things: a uniform for a child, job creation in impoverished communities and orphan care.”
