“Even a blind man can see that one act of kindness makes the world a better place…
and that world begins with you."

Last year, Robert walk 450 miles, (over 1,400,000 steps in 32 days) Robert’s purpose was to do Intentional Acts of Kindness and he accomplished his mission. A service dog was obtained and is currently being trained to assist a non verbal young boy with autism and diabetes: Robert distributed over 500 Dooplapoops - Puppets with a Purpose to schools, churches, community centers and hospitals.

He sang at concerts for Veterans and made a lot of people smile on this journey.


Our focus this year will be to honor our First Responders.
 
Robert's desire is to encourage others to help him raise funds this year for The Gary Sinise Foundation. Robert researched different non-profits who support our First Responders and Veterans and The Gary Sinise Foundation stood out. Robert is working out all the details now but it is Robert’s intention to make the Gary Sinise Foundation our top recipient for The Kindness Walk this year.

“I may never be able to serve as a First Responder or in the military, but as a blind man, I know I can do something…I can walk to bring awareness and serve our First Responders. I hope you will join me. Donate to the Gary Sinise Foundation today.”



As Robert takes each step of his one million steps, he will also dedicate his walk to Sergeant Henry Prendes. Henry made the ultimate sacrifice and in his honor his wife (Dawn) continued his dream. His dream was to build a camp to provide life-changing experiences, instruction, and opportunities to at-risk and underprivileged children and youth. Today that dream is happening and Robert will support Henry’s Place for what they do.


Each step Robert takes will support The Gary Sinise Foundation & Henry’s Place. Many life memories came from our last walk and this journey will touch many others. Contact us, but more importantly visit www.GarySiniseFoundation.org and www.HenrysPlace.org and donate. Tell them Robert F. Smith is helping them to make dreams come true.
