I saw Steve Fugate on the side of the road in the Californian desert the day after Christmas. In 1999, lost his son to suicide. A few years later he lost his daughter to a drug overdose. At sixty-four years old, he has walked across the United States seven times to raise awareness for depression and suicide and to inspire people he meets to "love life." Prior to his departure, Steve ran a couple of successful car detailing businesses in Vero Beach, Florida. After fourteen years and 34,000 miles of walking, Steve continues his quest to heal his heart and the hearts of those in need.
“When love fills your life all limitations are gone. The medicine this sick world needs so badly is love.”
