REDMOND, Wash. - Seattle resident Jack Morris has trekked across America in support of Seattle Children's Hospital.

Starting in Jacksonville, Fla., he has walked for four months, over 3,000 miles and has slept everywhere imaginable - all to raise money for kids he doesn't even know.
 
This amazing idea started when Jack lost his job earlier this yea. Instead of viewing it as an economic low point, he decided to make it a lifetime high point.

He's hoping to raise $100,000 for Seattle Children's Hospital but is still short of that goal. Make a donation on his website and join him Friday at 9 a.m. at Safeco Field to walk the final leg of his journey with him. He will arrive on the doorstep of Seattle Children's Hospital at noon.
