Retired Marines to walk 100 miles for charity

Trek will raise money to send care packages to troops

Two retired Marines are on a mission that started Wednesday to walk from Wausau to Lambeau Field.

Shannon Anker and Chad Hintz want to help their former colleagues by walking 100 miles to raise money to send care packages to troops overseas.

“When we were in and we would get a care package from home, it would make you think, ‘OK, this is what we’re over here fighting for.’ And that’s what we want. We want to send them a little piece of home and say, ‘Here, we know what you’re doing. We feel for you,'” said Hintz.

It’s the fourth year in a row they’ve made the trek from Rib Mountain to the Vince Lombardi statue outside Lambeau Field.
