College sophomore Gordon Wayne finished a walking journey in August that spanned over 500 miles from central Virginia to Boston. The purpose was two-fold: to get to school while raising funds for and awareness about homelessness. The year before, he was living out of his car and working 10-hour shifts at a local amusement park. He spent his evenings applying to college. After getting admitted to a local community college, he then got acceptance into his dream school, Boston College, on a full scholarship. Along his walk, he walked 30-40 miles a day over 16 days and raised over $100,000 for National Alliance to End Homelessness. "Every time I want to quit, I just think about the people I'm doing this for and this is bigger than myself and I have to keep going," Wayne told World News Tonight.
