WALKING ACROSS AMERICA, PHILANTHROPIST MAKES BRIEF STOP AT SERVICEMASTER HEADQUARTERS


Despite the scorching summer temperatures and daunting task of walking several hundred more miles (1,833 miles to be exact), Stephen Homsey continues to walk with fierce determination and razor-sharp focus on one goal: to raise money and awareness for multiple sclerosis by walking across America.
Aptly named after his cross-country campaign, “Steps For MS” is the registered non-profit organization Stephen formed to create awareness for this debilitating disease during his walk across America. Stephen has been walking from Boston on his way to San Diego for the last 90 days and on Tuesday, he found himself in Memphis. At the suggestion of his relative ServiceMaster intern, James Siegel, Stephen took a slight detour to share his story with ServiceMaster associates at the 860 Ridge Lake offices.
“What an amazing person,” said Amy Moen, talent acquisition manager for ServiceMaster. “When James shared his cousin’s story with me, I knew we had to give him a warm Southern ServiceMaster welcome. It was a treat to meet him and hear his story. He’s truly inspiring.”
James has been in touch with his cousin throughout the walk and knows how much it means to Stephen for people to show support for this cause.
“When I realized Stephen would be coming through Memphis I asked him to make a stop by ServiceMaster,” said James. “I know how supportive the people at ServiceMaster are and I knew he’d be given a warm reception.”
Stephen has a facebook page and website dedicated to this cause. In fact, he has already received a lot of support, well wishes and donations thanks to the social media.
“I’ve met a lot of great people along the way and have even been unofficially adopted by a least thirty moms who check on me periodically to ensure I’m doing well,” jokes Stephen.

You can also follow his journey, including near real-time GPS tracking updates through his website www.steps4ms.org which includes links to his facebook page. And, if you happen to be on the list of cities he plans to visit, be sure to follow his GPS position so you can meet up with him to say hello, show your support and share a nice cold bottle of water.
