Father Walks His Daughter To School Every Single School Day For 10 Years Straight!
Dear Eric Lanford : An amazing streak and heartwarming story is about to come to an end… In today’s too-busy FaceBook-Bluetooth-iPhone-Twitter world, a very successful businessman (real estate artist and author) has made the time to walk his daughter to school every single school day since she was 4-years-old and in Pre-Kindergarten. She soon graduates 8th grade, and Laura McKinney and her father Frank McKinney will take their last walk hand-in-hand at 7:00 a.m., Wednesday, May 16 - over 1,650 walks and 10 years since their very first! Please read the following short release to learn more, and let me know if I can set up an interview or provide an address for you to join them! Thank you.

Delray Beach, FL, May 14, 2012 – On May 16, Frank McKinney will walk his daughter Laura to St. Vincent Ferrer School for the last time – a tradition that started over 1,650 walks ago, and has carried on unbroken since Laura’s first day of Pre-Kindergarten on August 21, 2002. That’s right; Laura has never been driven to school in the 10 years since she started Pre-Kindergarten. Rain, cold, wind, even hurricane warnings… it didn’t matter! Frank and Laura experienced epic adventures, stories, and wildly imaginative games on their daily odyssey! What began as special time to spend together, just Dad and Daughter, has grown into an amazing daily ritual that now involves as many as one hundred of Laura’s schoolmates who are eager to join them on the first Friday of every month. The 7-block walks, through the McKinney’s jungle-like back yard, past an eerie nature preserve, and over a 1949 drawbridge, inspired Frank McKinney’s young reader fantasy novel; Dead Fred, Flying Lunchboxes, and the Good Luck Circle ( www.Dead-Fred.com ). Perhaps the most inspiring part of the story is it happened in today’s world of too-busy-to-care dads and disconnected parent/children relationships. Still walking hand-in-hand when most teenagers wouldn’t be caught dead with their dad, Frank and Laura use this time to share their love for each other and all that is good in this world.
