Bremerton kid cleaning up the country

A proud momma, (That’s how she signed it.) wrote to tell us about her son, Mark Chavez, who is involved with a nationwide effort to clean up America.

He is part of Pick Up America, which was featured in ABC’s Persons of the Week segment just a couple of weeks ago.

Chavez, an Olympic High grad, is an idealistic sort. He tried to ride a longboard across America for peace. He’s now driving the bus back. The bus, by the way, is fueled by recycled vegetable oil.

Watch the ABC video about the founders of Pick Up America and what they are doing as they cross the nation.

And props to Cathy Mass for helping raise an ambitious son.
