Birmingham student receives auto after walking nearly 20 miles to work

Carr told Jenny Lamey that he and his family had moved to Alabama after they lost their home in Hurricane Katrina. So he recorded his answers again.

Carr, a college student at Lawson State Community College in Birmingham, had just been hired to work as a mover for Bellhop Moving Company. Not knowing anybody on the moving team, Carr didn't call them for a ride.

He left the house at midnight and just started walking, expecting to make it to the house about seven hours later, a little early for the 8 a.m. start time, according to the Homewood Star. "He WALKED ALL NIGHT to get from Homewood to Pelham". "What he had endured just to be there to help me with my move". He and his partners were concerned for his welfare and stopped to check on him.

"I'm still in shock", he said.

"I want to show my job I am what I said I was in my interview-that I'm dedicated".

Marklin apparently drove from Tennessee under the guise of thanking Walter, only to surprise him with a barely-driven 2014 Ford Escape.

"It's in much better hands with you than it is with me, and I couldn't think of a better way to part ways with this or to put it to better use", Marklin told Carr.

Client Jenny Lamey says Carr declined her offer to rest, instead getting straight to work.

"No matter what the challenge is, you can break through the challenge", Carr said. Nothing is impossible unless you make it impossible, " he told the site.

Carr said he knew God was with him, and while he did have thoughts of turning back, he knew that wasn't the type of man he was, and so he kept going.

Lamey, her husband and the police officer were moved by Walter's story, and it's apparent that Walter's exceptional determination for showing up on his first day at work wasn't missed by the CEO of Bellhops Moving, either.

Lamey's post went viral and caught the attention of Luke Marklin, the Bellhops CEO, on Sunday morning. ". It's that "Never die" attitude". "Like you can drive away with it", he said to Carr. The story led him to give away his own auto so Carr can be a part of many more Bellhops jobs in the future.

"I think there's a decision you make that just feel like the right thing and when we were talking about our options I just knew that the vehicle I had was going to be in better use with him then with me", Marklin added. When I read Walter's story, it was something that I wasn't even sure that I would do. "He certainly made an impact on us", the Pelham police department tweeted. "I can't imagine how many times on that lonely walk down 280 in the middle of the night did he want to turn back", Lamey wrote on Facebook, as reported by AL.com.
