Man and His Goat Walking Cross Country for Good Cause


By Aimee Burnett

Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) A man is walking across America to raise money to build an orphanage in Nairobi, Africa.

Steve Wescott and his goat Leroy are on a journey from the Space Needle to New York City.

He's hoping to raise $200,000.

He's raised $10,000 so far.

"It's about 3,700 miles. So, my goal was to do it in 9 months, but a goat is not fast. It's actually pretty slow. So, it's probably going to take me a couple of years," said Steven Wescott, walking coast to coast.
