People March Nearly Naked for a Good Cause
Veterans and allies hiked 10 miles on Duluth’s Lakewalk
DULUTH, Minn. – Hundreds of people dressed down to their skivvies and braved the cold to raise awareness of Veteran suicide rates
Veterans and allies hiked 10 miles on Duluth’s lakewalk wearing nothing but underwear and a pack full of weights. The packs represented the weight that veterans carry in the battle against combat stress.
“I have many military friends, a lot of whom suffer from PTSD, and any support I can give to them or the community any outreach, I’d love to be a part of it,” said Erin Wigg, a marcher.
Every pound in the packs represented 10 dollars raised for 23rd Veteran, a non-profit organization that helps veterans transition to civilian life.
