Oxnard Man Takes Steps to Fight Bullying

An Oxnard man will walk from Port Hueneme to San Diego to raise awareness against bullying.

Chris Kalb will start his 200-mile journey on Thanksgiving Day.

Kalb says he was picked on as a kid because he was overweight. He transformed himself by joining the U.S. Navy and getting away from the people that bullied him.

He hopes the walk will help people understand how hurtful bullying can be.

“The message I want to send to kids that are currently in school…I want them to look at me and see this guy that went through bullying, went through depression, and has reached rock bottom with suicide attempts and stuff like that,” Kalb said. “and look at him now…now he is doing something extraordinary with his life.”

At 50 miles a day, Kalb should end up at the U.S.S. Midway in San Diego by Sunday night.
