CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Several soldiers from Fort Campbell will make a journey from Clarksville to Nashville – on foot.

The Walk to Nashville, which stretches over 50 miles and 17 hours, will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Walkers will begin at Texas Casual Grill near Exit 1 Aug. 30 and end at the Holiday Inn Express at 920 Broadway in Nashville Aug. 31.

Registration begins at 2 p.m., and walkers will hit the road at 4 p.m. Some walkers will stay at the hotel, but participants must find their own mode of transportation back from Clarksville. Pit-stops will be made along the route for water and supplies, but walkers are asked to bring their own water in the beginning.

SSG Eric Wrisley from Cco 3/187, who is also a student at APSU, organized the event as a way to bring awareness to and raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project and help local soldiers.
