Student Walks 20 Miles To First Day Of Work, Boss Gives Him His Car
July 17, 2018
When his car broke down, he walked to get to his first day on a new job.
The night before Walter Carr was supposed to start his new job with Bellhops Moving Company, his car broke down. The college student figured out how long it would take him to walk from Homewood, Alabama to Pelham, where he was supposed to train on his first day helping a family move.
Carr set off about midnight and had walked for about four hours before local police picked him up and took him to breakfast. When they learned his story, they gave him a ride to the home where he’d be working and shared his story with Jenny Lamey, who hired the company for her move that day. She was so touched by the young man’s determination, she shared the “nice kid’s” story in a now-viral Facebook post.
Lamey felt so moved to help Carr, she set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for him. But that’s not even the best part! After hearing about Carr’s dedication to getting to work, the CEO of Bellhops, Luke Marklin, had a surprise for him. The boss drove from Tennessee and gave Carr his own 2014 Ford Escape and personally thanked him.
"I want people to know this - no matter what the challenge is, you can break through the challenge,” Carr says. “Nothing is impossible unless you make it impossible.”
Little guy can't control his excitement for "The Office" so he sings along to the theme song.
