Jay Atlas (son of PathWays PA employee Rosemarie Whiteley) and childhood friend Shannon Sprowal are partway through their journey on a walking route from Atlantic City to Los Angeles to bring attention to the horrors of human trafficking.
The pair left Atlantic City on July 15 with just $21 in their pocket and 50 lbs. of gear on each of their backs. The brothers, as they call themselves, are carrying perishable food, a tent, a red sharpie and an "End Human Trafficking" sign. They travel about 30 miles per day and plan to reach Los Angeles by the end of October.
You can stay up-to-date on their journey through their Facebook page, Long Road to Freedom and Twitter @KeepsJayWalking.
