An almost 100-mile walk from Myrtle Beach to Charleston to benefit Veterans is currently underway and set to conclude today.
The Veterans Victory Walk highlights and honors the sacrifices veterans have made for their country.
Participants departed from the Myrtle Beach Vet Center at 6:30 am on Tuesday and began their walk to Charleston. During the 100-mile walk, participants have had the opportunity to take breaks every so often. However, they have continued to walk through the night in order to arrive at Patriots Point on Veterans Day.
In total, it is expected to take around 35 hours to complete the walk.
Amanda Yurkin, an event organizer for the walk, said the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has “given people an opportunity to train, we’ve gotten together, and we’ve walked together in groups and it’s given veterans a mission, a long-term mission, something to look forward to instead of just being at home, it’s given them something possible to look forward too.”
