I was fortunate enough to see Steve twice in one weekend. He was walking through the local mountains in San Diego. What an inspiration.
“Love Life” guy passes through Montevideo
On your way to work yesterday you may have witnessed something special. His message is simple: “Love Life”. Steve Fugate is a 66 year old man from Vero Beach, Florida and he is currently on a nationwide trip, zigzagging across the United States…walking. Yes, you heard correctly…walking. Steve has logged over 30,000 miles with his Love Life sign and yesterday he passed through Montevideo, spreading the word about suicide prevention and about loving life in general. Steve lost his son to suicide in 1999 and he lost his daughter to an accidental drug overdose in 2005. When asked why he keeps doing it, he simply replied: “Because I want everyone to love life as much as I do.” Learn more about Steve at lovelifewalk.com or on facebook at facebook.com/stevelovelife.
