On Saturday, November 19, 2011, Gerardo Sandoval and I were among the record-breaking 10,000 people who participated in this year’s Homewalk. Representing the HMC Happy Feet walking team, we joined United Way of Greater Los Angeles in the fundraising efforts to solve the homelessness problem in Los Angeles. It was our way of taking action to raise awareness about homelessness, and we arrived bright and early to walk the 5K and donate to the cause. But once on the course, our team didn’t rush to the finish line—instead we soaked in our surroundings and ended up rediscovering a transformed area of the city.
