South Florida businessman and philanthropist Mike Fernandez will walk more than 500 miles across the Pyrenees from France to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain on the pilgrimage route known as The Way of St. James or El Camino. His goal is to raise $3 million for Miami Children's Hospital where Daniela, the youngest of his two granddaughters, had life-saving heart surgery earlier this year. The goal of this video series, produced by DanPerezFilms.com, is to help support this initiative.
