23-year-old walks across nation for Haiti relief

(WFLX) - An update on a story we brought you last Monday about a young man walking across the country to help get relief to Haiti. That's when 23-year-old Jordan Dibb was making his way through our area.

Well Monday, he reached his goal. Arriving in Miami from Minneapolis, all on foot.

Dibb says he couldn't find a job after college and decided to help with the relief efforts in Haiti. But after being turned down over and over from volunteer groups, he decided to walk to Miami to raise money himself.

"It's pretty much done. I'm just a few feet away from the city hall, and that's where I wanted to end. It's just kind of amazing. It kind of just hit that 'Yeah, I walked all the way here from Minneapolis to Miami,' so it's feeling pretty good."

The money Dibb raised will go to a non-profit that provides safe water and food to those in need.
