DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A walk across the country to raise awareness and money for a good cause is one pause after one of the participants died.

The goat, known as “Leeroy Brown” died Tuesday in Columbus.

The goat and his owner Steve Wescott were walking from Seattle to New York City as part of the “Needle 2 Square” campaign to raise awareness for an orphanage in Kenya.

The pair had been walking together since 2012.

The pair was spotted around the Miami Valley last month.

They had been walking together since 2012.
