Barrett Keene, a PhD student at Cornell University, is walking 3,475 miles from Miami to San Francisco to help raise awareness about the struggles of nearly 145 million orphaned and abandoned children around the world. As an education student and educator himself, Keene said he was fortunate to serve children as a teacher and through his Go Walk America challenge. His relationship with Christ motivated him to serve those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to take care of their own needs, especially children. Donations will directly benefit orphaned and abandoned children in places like Uganda and Haiti by providing school uniforms, a necessity that would otherwise keeps children in these places from accessing education.
