Ohio Pastor Walking Across America for Community Center
An Ohio pastor is walking from New York to Los Angeles to raise money to build a community center.
Pastor Corey Brooks spent three months sitting on the roof of a building in Chicago and raised enough money to have the building demolished.
Now the man dubbed ‘The Rooftop Pastor’ is raising funds to build a new community center in its place.
“Sometimes when I’m going up those hills, I’ll face those hills and I’ll say ‘Man this is crazy, this is ridiculous, I’ll just stop but I figure the more attention I can keep bringing the better off things will be,” said Brooks. “So there are time when I want to quit but I got too much in me to quit so I’ll die before I quit.”
Brooks and his Project Hood team hope to raise $15 million in their coast to coast walk.
