Walking For Youth
The Walking Veteran has announce that he will lead a 200 mile walk to bring awareness for Recognizing Goodness in Youth (RGIY.org). The Walk will begin in Henryetta, Oklahoma at 8am (CDT) July 17, 2017 and conclude in Little Rock, Arkansas August 3, 2017
Recognizing Goodness in Youth is dedicated to giving recognition to the American youth that excels in making their community and America great through their extraordinary acts of kindness.
Recognizing Goodness in Youth was founded in 2016 out of a vision from The Walk Across America – 2016. The Walking Veteran had noticed that the news media seems to give priority to youth that engage in disrespect of the American flag, criminal activities, civil disobedience, and juvenile delinquency. However, the vast majority of American youth are patriotic and do engage in activities that makes America great. Those are the youth that are unrecognized. Recognizing Goodness in Youth is dedicated to giving recognition to the American youth that excels in making their community and America great through their extraordinary acts of kindness.
Today, RGIY is a non profit corporation with tax exempt status. The organization is headquartered in Arkansas with a national board of directors. Daniel Espinoza is the chairman of the board and Alice Sue Davis is the president. RGIY awards eligible youth in five categories each year the Daniel Cox Inspirational Award along with the Mike Spann Memorial College Grant.
“Funding is required to make any organization successful. This is not about me, it’s about the youth. I am very passionate about the young people that care about veterans that are out in the community doing great things. Where is the national news media when these young people needs coverage? The Walk Across America had a profound impact on me. I had witnessed several times some young people protesting, disrespecting the flag, involved in criminal activity and they received extended coverage. It is time to stand up and walk for these young people. I am not the media but I sure can walk the extra mile in support of Recognizing Goodness in Youth.” Hudson said.
The Walking Veteran is walking to support RGIY.org with asking for the public’s support for a worthy organization to recognizing our youth. No donations will be collected by The Walking Veteran but you are asked to donate online at RGIY.org and help our youth.
