Can you imagine walking 15 miles everyday just to get to work? Well this 52 year old man does it everyday.

The man, who only wanted to be identified by his first name, Patrick, was walking along a highway when a police officer came up to him. Officer Branson asked him if everything was going all right, and what he learned stunned him.

Branson learned that Patrick walked 15 miles, which took 2.5 hours 5 days a week just to get to his job. Patrick works at an ice cream shop and burger restaurant, where he is the manager.

A coworker gives him a ride home every evening, but he still continues to make the long trek every morning. And his determination has touched the hearts of many. Even a local resident has created a GoFundMe page, where it has raised nearly $4,000 to help Patrick.

“My kids will know about Patrick, my grandkids will know about Patrick, everyone should know about Patrick,” wrote Officer Branson on the McKinney P.D. Facebook page.

Patrick had been working at a Braums which was closer to where he lives until he was transferred to one 15 miles away. But he didn’t worry. He just did what he had to do.

“Commitment. You make a commitment to your job, to go to work every day. They expect you to go to work every day. No excuses,” said Patrick during an interview.

Patrick is such an awesome man for being so determined to do this every day. It is simply amazing.
