PARAGOULD, Ark. (KAIT) - Walking for a cause.

A Virginia man making his way across the country made a stop Thursday in Paragould.

Steve Young is walking for Victory Junction, a camp for children who have terminal illnesses.

The camp opened in 2004 in honor of NASCAR driver, Adam Petty who wanted to open a camp for children with serious medical conditions.

Young is now spreading the word about the camp.

“I am sharing the gospel as I go. People call me a traveling preacher or traveling evangelist. A walking preacher, walking evangelist,” said Young. “So, I am out here doing that and bringing awareness to this camp.”

Young will be in Northeast Arkansas this weekend before heading west to Oklahoma. Later he will loop into Missouri.

He has already traveled on the Northeast coast of the country.
