RALEIGH COUNTY -

Two local former marines will exercise during a good cause this summer.

One of the marines is from Raleigh County. The men are walking across the country as part of an initiative called "The Wounded Walk ."

On June 15th they will start at Camp Pendleton, California and make their way to Washington, D.C.

"I spent 4 years in the marine corp. and a few of our friends got messed up over there so it struck close to home when we decided to do it," said Christopher Senopole.

All proceeds from The Wounded Walk will be donated to the nonprofit organization "Wounded Warrior Project."

The project supports a full range of programs and services for injured veterans and their families.
