O’Neal is walking from the site of the now closed Vidant Pungo Hospital in Belhaven to Washington, D.C. to protest the closure of his town’s hospital. He plans to walk 20 miles each day until he reaches the nation’s capital on Monday. O’Neal said he wants people nationwide to know about Belhaven’s struggle to keep the Vidant Pungo Hospital open.
