Fraternity Members Walking To Panama City
Thousands of University students are hitting the road for Spring Break. But one group of fraternity men are traveling a different way, taking them a much longer time to get to the beach.
Sixteen members of Troy University's Alpha Tau Omega fraternity are walking the 125 from Troy to Panama City. It's all part of the fifth annual Walk Hard event. They average about 21 miles a day to raise awareness and money for the Wounded Warrior Project. They expect to make it into Panama City by Wednesday afternoon.
Hunter Roe, Alpha Tau Omega President Troy University said, "We always strive to put others before ourselves. And I think this is a great way to do that. We have been doing Walk Hard the past few years. And what better way to put others before yourselves than sacrificing your spring break and walking for some of those that cant."
So far they've raised more than $10,000 and hope to reach their goal of $15,000. For more information on how to donate visit www.walkhard.org.
