Man Walking to California for Son Approaching Finish Line
Date:9/28/2007

2,200-mile fundraising journey nearing completion

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspired father Jim Armbruster, 60, will triumphantly finish a five-month 2,200-mile fundraising journey to the Golden Gate Bridge at 4:45 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, in San Francisco, Calif., two weeks ahead of schedule and $43,000 richer for Marklund, the not-for-profit treatment center that has cared for Armbruster's developmentally disabled son, Nathan, for nearly 19 years.

In September, his campaign reached just over $43,000 -- with every last penny going straight to Marklund since Armbruster is covering all of his trip expenses out of his own pocket.

Earlier this month, Marklund's CEO, Joel Rusco, joined Armbruster for seven days and 120 miles of the trip as a show of solidarity and support for Armbruster's amazing commitment.

"Jim knows the challenges of raising a child with disabilities. He wants to give back to other parents who are going through the same thing," said Rusco. "His campaign is helping to cement our future so that we can continue helping people with disabiliti
