brings this human interest story by Cyrus Sutton about Steve Fugate

After losing both his son and his daughter at the age of 50 years old, Steve left his successful car businesses behind to walk across America to raise awareness for depression and remind people to be happy. 

Now he’s 64 and has walked over 34,000 miles. He hauls a small cart of his belongings across the highway that holds up a sign that reads “LOVE LIFE.”

“I’m driven by not wanting others to go through pain. Not wanting other young people do what my little boy did. Not wanting other parents to go through the horror I went through. I’m motivated, man, I’m driven.”

He calls what he does “Trail Therapy.”
