Two Marines have embarked on a four-month-long journey on foot from Camp Pendleton to Washington, D.C., to raise funds and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project.
By Wednesday, as Chris Senopole and Adam Shatarsky walked along the 10 Freeway near Palm Springs, they had raised more than $6,000 for their online fundraiser. Their goal is to raise $10,000.
"We want to get awareness out and let our veterans know they're not forgotten," Shatarsky said. "There are people out there that are rooting for them and want to help."
Despite the blisters on their feet and other hardships they face on the long road ahead, Senopole and Shatarsky said they won’t forget their inspiration on their roughly 2,700-mile trek.
"We have quite a few friends that have been injured and some that have passed on,” Shatarsky said.
