Walter Carr is a shocking inspiration for many around the world. The young man recently joined as an employee of a packing and moving company. His first clients were a couple Jenny Lamey and her husband Chris. The couple stayed in Homewood- 20 miles away from his place of stay, Pelham, Alabama. That is 32 kilometers! If things weren’t unfortunate enough, right before his first day of work, Waler’s car broke down. He knew he couldn’t go to work. But the story does not end here.
Walked All Night To Get To Work
We've all seen the amazing story shared by Jenny about one of our bellhops, Walter Carr, but many have asked if we have any video from the moment CEO @LukeMarklin thanked Walter for the perseverance he demonstrated on his first day w/ @BellhopsMoving #TheWorldNeedsMoreWalters pic.twitter.com/mXrvI2JQoP

The young man does not give up hope. He made it to his first day through a plan nobody would have tried. At midnight, Walter started walking. He reached the house on time, by purely walking 32 km! Jenny was beyond impressed by his dedication and sense of responsibility. She took to social media to express her admiration.
When Walter Carr's car broke down, he walked all night for a 20-mile trip so he could be on time for his first day of work at a moving company.

“Walter said that he was supposed to help us with our move today. The officer proceeded to tell us that the previous evening, Walter’s car broke down and he didn’t know how he was going to get to work. So he left Homewood at MIDNIGHT and started WALKING to Pelham on 280. HE WALKED ALL NIGHT.”
Supposedly, the cops picked him up by morning and after hearing his story, brought him to breakfast and then to Jenny’s house. When the couple asked if he wanted to take a breather, he declined! And following that, he started working.

The company’s CEO was shortly informed of the news, and that too, of his new employee and decided to show his admiration and gratitude as well. He was extremely shocked but also proud. He drove to Walter to give him a well-deserved gift and surprise. Walter was gifted a 2004 Ford Escape for his dedication and work ethic.
