Boy Walks 280 Miles for Homeless Kids

Tuesday, November 27, 2007

A 10-year-old boy from the Tampa area walked 280 miles to Tallahassee to turn the spotlight on the plight of homeless kids.

Zach Bonner lives with his family in Valrico. He walked the final mile to the state Capitol Monday morning with his older sister and a group of volunteers. He started walking Nov. 3.

Zach has done charitable work almost all his life. He says he planned his walk after hearing that Congress had declared November as National Homeless Youth Awareness Month.

His project raised awareness of homeless youth and also raised about $25,000 in donations and supplies for them.
