This a journey that must be shared.
Since last summer, Adam Shatarsky has walked from Camp Pendleton in California to 8th and I Marine Barracks in Washington, D.C and from New York City to the Nation’s Capital. In total, the two walks have logged Adam nearly 3,000 miles of on-foot voyaging.
His trek between cities and seaboards is more than just a casual stroll for pleasure. Adam, along with a friend, created the Wounded Walk, a nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and awareness for veterans and troops returning from deployment. The second walk started in the Big Apple on April 10th.
On Saturday, Adam and Ross Delafield, a former Marine, finished the month-long excursion.
They shared their experience and provided more information The Wounded Walk on Redskins Nation with Larry Michael, Voice of the Washington Redskins. Their interview will air at 4:00pm this afternoon on Comcast SportsNet and again at 11:30pm tonight. If you can’t see it tonight, Redskins Nation will also play at 7:30am tomorrow.
Before you sit down to listen to their incredible journey and all of the great work they do, here’s a sneak peak of their latest walk:-REDSKINS-
ABOUT THE REDSKINS: Headquartered at Redskins Park in Ashburn, Virginia, and owned by Daniel Snyder, the historic Washington Redskins Football Club has won five World Championship titles including the 1937 and 1942 National Football League Championship games, as well as Super Bowls XVII, XXII and XXVI. Founded in 1932 as the Boston Braves in Massachusetts, the team changed its name to the Redskins in 1933 and relocated to Washington, D.C., in 1937. Since then, the team has become one of the most recognizable professional sports franchises in history, featuring multiple Hall of Fame coaches, 19 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (with seven others who also were Redskins) and becoming the first team in the NFL with an official marching band and fight song, "Hail to the Redskins." The Redskins have been owned by Dan Snydersince 1999, and beginning in 1997, began playing their home games at FedExField in Landover, Md.
