Woman Walks Across Country To Spread Hope, End Homelessness
One woman is taking her message to the streets by walking across the country. And after walking 113 miles, she finally made it into Gainesville.
Brandi Palmer, of Orlando, plans to walk even farther to raise awareness about homelessness.
With each step, Palmer takes, it's a step further to help spread awareness for her cause. This Orlando native has decided to go on a mission to help end homelessness, and she hopes to get that message out by walking across the country.
Palmer would know because she used to be homeless herself for 23 years.
She started an organization called Hope Station U.S.A. Organizers help homeless people get food, clothing and find work.
To celebrate the charities one year anniversary, Palmer is walking from the Sunshine State to the Golden State, ending her cause in Los Angeles.
Palmer said she feels good about it.
"I'm great, I'm so amped about this and that's just how dedicated to this project," Palmer said.
Palmer says her goal is to reach Los Angeles by mid-August. That's a total of 2,700 miles.
