Ball State Student Walks 820 Miles for Hurricane Katrina Relief Efforts | Muncie Free Press
Ball State Student Walks 820 Miles for Hurricane Katrina Relief Efforts | Muncie Free Press: "MUNCIE, INDIANA - Arriving in New Orleans was a feeling of accomplishment like none other. Ball State junior Ben Poor could not compare anything to the challenge he had undertaken, as more than 100 supporters and a brass band greeted him at the end of his journey. After walking for 45 days, Poor reached his final destination with 820 miles behind him, raising more than $11,000 for Hurricane Katrina relief. Poor, a business student, hopes his journey will lead to other philanthropic opportunities possibly within the military, the Peace Corps, politics or public speaking."
