Louisville, KY (PRWEB) July 1, 2006
Brendan Kelly, 33, of Louisville, Kentucky, is planning a three month, 1800 mile walk from his hometown to Las Vegas, Nevada where he will play one hand of Blackjack for $250,000. He is currently selling the 3,250,000 steps that he will take for $1 each on his website, paymetowalk.com. $1.25 million of the money collected plus any winnings from the Blackjack hand will be distributed to charities including Habitat for Humanity and Make a Wish Foundation.
Mr. Kelly got the idea after hearing about a young man who made $1 million selling pixels on his website.
“I was having a lot of financial troubles so I needed a way to make some money,” said Kelly, “but I also wanted to give some away.”
He is also filming his experience and hopes to use part of his earnings to produce a documentary.
