One man is walking all the way to Ottawa.

Adam McDonald is hoping to raise awareness of homeless and missing aboriginal people.

On Tuesday, he will be starting his journey in Fort McKay ending at Parliament Hill.

McDonald tells Mix News his first stop will be at the Fellowship Baptist Church Soup Kitchen in Fort McMurray.

“From there, I’m going across Canada to Ottawa, from here to Edmonton, from Edmonton to Red Deer and Calgary, and from Calgary all the way to Ottawa.”

After enjoying lunch with those at the soup kitchen, he plans to make his way to the parliament building before continuing his walk along Highway 63.

Throughout the walk, he will be camping out alone each night with the only contact being the few people he hopes will join him for different stretches of the trip.

McDonald notes one of the few things he’s bringing with him is a Canadian flag.

“Down at the soup kitchen, they donated me a flag and I got the whole flag all signed up and it’s roughly around 400 people who’ve signed my flag.”

McDonald hopes to wave the flag while down in the Nation’s Capital. He expects the trip to take between three and four months.
