The race to home just got a lot longer for Will Perry, but with the opportunity to help kids in need receive the equipment they need to play baseball, he is determined to make it. Will hopes to raise $5,000 dollars to help Brazilian youth experience America’s Favorite Pastime. All he has to do is walk 192 miles across the U.K. and with the help of generous sponsors, baseball equipment will be shipped to one of Brazil’s underserved communities through Pitch in For Baseball.
Starting on June 24th Perry will take his first step off homeplate and walk from West to East coast across England, finishing on July 6th. The 12 day walk will start at the Irish Sea and end at the North Sea, requiring three months of long-distance training. Along the 192 miles Perry will cross three of Great Britain’s National Parks.
