On Saturday afternoon, Mark James Baumer, 33, of Providence, Rhode Island, was was killed when he was struck by an SUV while walking along U.S. Hwy 90 in Florida. It was his 100th day of walking, and it put a tragic end to his barefoot walk across America to raise awareness and money for climate change.Baumer was planning to donate all the money raised during his walk—the second time he was planning to walk across the country (the first time in 2010 he wore shoes)—to the FANG Collective, a group building, supporting, and escalating nonviolent resistance to the natural gas industry.
