A 43-year-old Army vet wanted to do something big to raise awareness for veteran suicides so he strapped on his best walking shoes and made his way to Disney World!
Sounds simple enough, right? Well veteran, Jimmy Novak, has been walking 22 miles a day all the way from Washington State to Disney in Florida!
Why 22 miles?
Well the specific number comes from the statistic that 22 veterans each day die from suicide, which is what Novak is walking to bring awareness to.
He is actually reaching his final destination today (August 22nd) which happens to also be his birthday!!
Happy birthday, Novak, and thank you!
