One Hundred Mile Hump Raises Money For Wounded Veterans
Lynchburg, VA- Three Liberty Law Students are walking 100 miles this week, to bring attention to a cause close to their hearts. It's called the One Hundred Mile Hump, and it's to raise money for Operation Homefront; an organization that helps wounded veterans.
The students left from the Liberty Law School Sunday morning and will be walking to Hampden Sydney and back. This is the fifth year of the walk. It was started by Mark Finelli, a survivor of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and a marine. Ryan Adams, a third year law student and a member of the Virginia National Guard, says this is the least they can do.
"They've given almost everything for us and the least we can do, with two legs and two feet, is give a little bit back to them, especially here during the holidays. So, that's why we're doing it," said Adams.
Adams says the walk will take them seven to nine days to complete.Their goal is to raise $10,000 to help wounded veterans this holiday season. If you would like to donate click here.
