Zach Bonner is 12 years old and has spent the past 3 years walking across the country (from Tampa, FL to Los Angeles, CA) to raise awareness of homelessness and funds for homeless kids. You can find out more about Zach and his Little Red Wagon Foundation here.
It’s amazing that one so young has been so committed to this social issue, and has now spent a quarter of his life thus far walking across the United States in support of his goal. Please, if you’re in the Los Angeles area, join Zach Bonner for the final mile of his walk tomorrow, September 14, 2010. Participants will meet at 2200 Virginia Ave. (Virginia Avenue Park) at 2:00 p.m. and will walk the final mile to Santa Monica Pier.
I was hoping to make it there, but alas, my car has not yet been fixed, so I’m stuck where I’m at for a couple more days, and I’ve also got a media interview tomorrow afternoon about the book. Rats. In any event, I hope some of my SoCal-based readers catch this and, if you’re free tomorrow or can get away from work, turn out to support Zach, the Little Red Wagon Foundation, and homeless kids everywhere.
