David Ashby starts journey to Washington, D.C.

David Ashby, 14, set out from the Coalition’s main campus yesterday, officially beginning his 1,100 mile walk to Washington, D.C. to bring awareness to the plight of the 1.35 million homeless children in the United States.  David started his journey surrounded by community supporters and some of the very homeless children about whom he hopes to raise awareness. After ending his first day’s journey at the Rescue Outreach Mission in Sanford, Florida, David is already back on the road today.
