A young student, Walter, had to trek 20 miles on his first day to resume at his new workplace. His car broke down the night before so he resorted to going on foot.
Before morning, the young man tried to see if his friends could take him but nothing came up as it was such short notice, Understanding Compassion reports.
The young man never allowed that to discourage him. Instead of staying back, he decided to walk all the way.
After checking maps and seeing that he would need seven hours to get to Pelham, Walter decided to leave at midnight. He slept in the afternoon and woke at 12 am to begin his journey, New York Post reports.
“I wanted to be there before 8. I wanted to beat the crew members there to let the company know how dedicated I am.”
At 4 am, the man had already walked 14 miles, leaving six to complete, so he decided to rest a little. The student said his body ached all over.
Some policemen who saw him at the roadside were amazed at his story and gave him breakfast before dropping him at a place to rest. While on his journey, he saw another officer who took him to his destination.
When the young man arrived at his destination, and the people he was to help move their load heard his story, they were really amazed.
Walter’s boss read his viral story online and was wowed. He drove to his place and surprised him with a car.
It should be noted that well-wishers had already raised money for him to repair his car before the gift came.
