ESCONDIDO, Calif. (AP) — A Massachusetts man making a 3,300-mile walk across the country to raise awareness about multiple sclerosis has reached San Diego County.
The North County Times says 27-year-old Stephen Homsey began his journey in May in his hometown of Winchester, Mass., reached Escondido on Monday and will complete his walk Friday in Coronado.
Homsey wore out eight pairs of tennis shoes on the way and weathered rain and the occasional angry dog. He's raised about $9,000 for MS research through his website, Steps for MS.
Homsey fell from an apartment building in 2009 and broke his back. He was unable to move for two months and couldn't walk for six. Homsey says that made him understand the plight of people with multiple sclerosis, many of whom have lost their mobility.
