CEO Gives His Car to Employee Who Walked 20 Miles to Work

  • Walter Carr won't have to worry about walking to work again

Instead a police officer rang their door and told them a student named Walter Carr had just walked more than 20 miles overnight to arrive on time for work. The officer checked out Carr's story before taking him to breakfast and then to the job, which was to help Jenny and Chris Lamey move.

"He had auto trouble the night before and left at midnight to move my family to a new home", Bellhops Customer Jennifer Lamey said.

On Monday, Bellhops CEO Luke Marklin surprised Carr by giving him his own 2014 Ford Escape, which he drove down from Chattanooga. He was due to start his first move the next day, July 13, almost twenty miles away from where he lived in the Homewood area of Birmingham, the Homewood Star reported.

"I think the reason we were so compelled to help is-we've had the values of heart and grit all along as a company-but I don't think anyone took it to that level", Marklin said. 'I asked him to share a little more and when he did, the crew was in awe of him too!' But rather than call in and miss his first day on the job, Carr made a decision to suck it up and travel to work by foot.

After the move, Jenny shared the story on Facebook.

"I just can't tell you how touched I was", says Lamey.

That's when Knighten and two other officers took him to breakfast. "He is humble and kind and cheerful and he had big dreams".

A police officer saw Carr walking and stopped to see if he needed help.

'I asked him if he was exhausted from all that walking and he replied that he wasn't and that he had a four hour nap before he left at midnight'.

'He is hardworking and tough.

"He WALKED ALL NIGHT to get from Homewood to Pelham".

Tuesday afternoon Carr, who is set to graduate in December and wants to become a Marine, said the realization that he doesn't have to walk everywhere is still setting in. "I am in total awe of this young man!" she wrote.

"I've never been that person that gives up", said Carr, 20.

He continued: "I want people to know this - no matter what the challenge is, you can break through the challenge". Nothing is impossible unless you make it impossible, " he told the site.

He told local news that his mother and father had raised him to help others, and he said that he plans to use his new vehicle to do just that. You can do anything you set your mind to'.

"God blessed me to be a blessing", he said.
