VIDEO: The 34,000 Mile Journey of Steve Fugate

This short film, made by Cyrus Sutton, is about the remarkable actions of one man in response to losing his son to suicide and his daughter to a drug overdose.

Sutton explains:

“I saw Steve Fugate on the side of the road in the middle of the Californian desert in January. In 1999, lost his son to suicide. A few years later, he lost his daughter to a drug overdose. At sixty-four years old, he has walked across the United States seven times to raise awareness for depression and suicide and to inspire people he meets to “love life.”  After fourteen years and 34,000 miles of walking, Steve continues his quest to heal his heart and the hearts of those in need one step at a time.”

It is an extraordinary, touching story.  No politics, no agenda, just inspirational human endurance and compassion.  Remarkable.
