Meet man, goat during fundraising journey

A man walking across the country with his goat to raise awareness of and money for an orphanage is visiting a Seymour farm.

Steve Wescott and his goat, LeeRoy, will visit Moenning Hill Farm, 3361 E. County Road 150N, Saturday for an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. People are invited to bring lawn chairs to the outdoor event.

Wescott and LeeRoy will be interacting with guests and providing photo opportunities, and Wescott will share information about his work with Uzima Outreach.

The nonprofit organization is a unique twofold ministry reaching out to drug addicts and the neglected and orphaned children of the addicted in Nairobi, Kenya.

Their 3,800-mile trek is called Needle2Square. It began at the Space Needle in Seattle on May 2, 2012, the 20-year anniversary of the passing of Wescott’s father, and will end at Times Square in New York City.

So far on the journey, Wescott has shared the story of Uzima with curious onlookers, community centers, schools and churches.

The goal is to raise enough funds to purchase an orphanage and land for Uzima Outreach so it can have a more permanent location and become self-sustaining.
