Big Shoes: 10 Year Old Walks For Homeless

October 17th, 2008 by flanews

A 10 year-old Tampa boy is lacing up his sneakers, once again, to help homeless kids. This year Zach Bonner is walking from Tallahassee to Atlanta to raise money for kids with no place to call home. Last year Zach walked from Tampa to the state Capitol and raised 25,000 dollars for homeless children. An estimated 34,000 children in Florida are homeless. Zach said he got the idea after visiting homeless shelters.

They are kids, who are just like me, but they dont have the same opportunities and they dont have a home to stay in or a bed to sleep in, so I think its really important, said Zach.

Zach expects the walk to take him 30 days. He hopes to raise 30,000 dollars.
