How far out of your way do you go to show kindness each day? Robert F. Smith, founder of The Kindness Walk in Long Beach, goes over 400 miles through the desert to show his dedication to kindness. And did we mention that he’s blind?

Each November, Robert makes the trek from Long Beach to Las Vegas with his team in support of organizations that provide services for Veterans, people with disabilities and children who are facing life-threatening challenges.

Listen as Robert tells us about his personal struggles and how he decided that he would use those struggles to inspire and support others the rest of his life:
