ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WDHN) — 36 members of the Troy University Alpha Tau Omega chapter are spending their spring break on a six-day 128-mile walking journey to Panama City Beach Florida.

“So there really is no true preparation for this, this is definitely a strenuous activity that the body should not be able to do so you gotta have a really important message as to why you’re doing what you’re doing,” Matthew Taylor said.

That message is to support the nonprofit organization Jeep Sullivan’s outdoor adventures — a group for wounded warriors.

“Very big group that’s not touched enough and loved enough by the community, especially for the work they are doing for us. They are overseas serving time giving us the opportunity to give us the rights that we have,” Taylor said.

Robert Green served in the army and fought in the Vietnam War where he was wounded three times and is now a purple heart recipient. For the past three years, he’s been meeting the walking warriors at their stop in enterprise to thank them.

“Right now there are 22 veterans a day committing suicide and this has got to stop and when you see this young gentleman walking for the veterans and the veterans driving down the road it lets them know somebody cares about them,” Green said.

The walk is an annual fundraiser for the fraternity – last year they raised $90,000the most they have received. The goal this year is $100,00.

Alpha Tau Omega is expected to arrive at Pier Park in Panama City on Wednesday around 4 – pm.
