Q How is he being tracked online? Is he travelling by himself or with an adult? How many days did it take to the white house? Why would his parents let him do that? What kind of food did he eat? Where does he stay overnight? C Its cool that he’s doing this for a good cause. I don’t think he’s going to make the 2500 in one summer. My mom does something like that (collects food). Homeless kids must really appreciate it. Really cool how he does it. I like his determination.
Zachary "Zach" Bonner was born in Arkansas on November 17, 1997. He now lives in Tampa, Florida, with his mother Laurie, sister Kelley, and brother Matt. Zac is a sixth-grade student of the Florida Virtual Academy, an online school.Florida Virtual Academy When Hurricane Charlie hit Florida in 2004, Zach collected 27 pickup trucks full of water. Zach received the Presidential Call to Service Award from President George W. Bush in 2006. In the same year, he received the Points of Light Award from Florida governor Jeb Bush. In 2008, he received the Alexandra Scott Butterfly Award from the Volvo for Life Awards. The video below was produced for that award; it shares Zach’s story and some of the projects he has led. In his free time, Zach has played Little League baseball. He also plays tennis and goes on bike rides with his friends. He hopes to go to college so he can become a lawyer. This summer, when Zach reached Washington, D.C., he spent 24 hours in the Sasha Bruce youth shelter where he got to learn firsthand how homeless kids get by. When CBS-TV news anchor Bob Schieffer interviewed Zach outside the shelter, he asked if there were times when Zach felt like giving up on the walk. “There were definitely times during the walk where you get tired and you don't want to go any further,” Zach responded, “but a child that's homeless doesn't get to quit being homeless, so why should I quit?” To see what other lessons Zach learned from his time in Washington, D.C., share the complete video interview below.
