Welcome to my 10 Million Steps fundraising page!

What?

My name is Benjamin Lee and in May 2013, I am setting out on a challenge of a lifetime. This challenge is to travel from the West coast to the East coast of America solely by foot. I, along with Lindsey Phalen, will be starting in San Francisco and making our way along the American Discovery Trail until we reach the East Coast. It will take an estimated 8 months and 10 million steps. For those wanting to keep up to date and follow me along this journey, join my facebook page

Why?

I've decided upon taking on this challenge for two reasons. Firstly, I love to travel and explore all that this world has to offer and on these trips, I love to do thinks differently and travel the roads less travelled while challenging myself. There will be no bigger challenge, adventure and better way to see America than walking and immersing myself in everything it has to offer. Therefore I decided that this walk was one accomplishment I needed to complete. The second reason was to raise money for Oxfam. I've been lucky enough to have travelled all around the world and on these travels I have had the honor of meeting and spending time with some less fortunate families and individuals. Being able to make a difference and help out families in these similar situations is why I've chosen to support Oxfam.
