31-year-old Matt Parrish is a former Army medic from Valdosta. He's embarking on a journey from Tampa to Los Angeles and said he estimates it will take a year to make the round trip.

Parrish hopes to raise twenty five-thousand dollars for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation.

Parrish hopes his trek will make the world a better place by relieving others from suffering and he's already making great strides.

"All the way through Florida in Georgia passed through Valdosta, Ashberry, Tifton Macon and I'm 45 minutes North of Burnsville now,"
said Parrish.

Parrish began his journey on Wednesday, January 19th 2011.
