All Proceeds benefiting The Wounded Walk
The Wounded Walk is a nonprofit organization located in Leesburg, Virginia that caters to physically and mentally wounded military veterans and advocates for the advancement of post-combat treatment for wounded veterans.
The idea to create The Wounded Walk originated in an Outback Steakhouse in San Diego, CA. Adam Shatarsky and Chris Senopole, while enlisted with the 2nd Battalion 5th Marines, sat in a booth at an Outback Steakhouse and discussed their life plans for after their time with the United States Marine Corps. To this day, neither Adam nor Chris know who came up with the idea to start The Wounded Walk, but once the idea was on the table, these Marines never looked back.
A walk across the United States was the daunting idea – 2,700 miles from Camp Pendleton, CA to Washington, DC, all to raise awareness for their wounded brothers and sisters in arms. In April 2013, Adam and Chris started planning their journey – planning their route, notifying friends, and spreading the word of wounded veterans in need.
On June 15, 2013, Adam and Chris stepped off from Camp Pendleton, CA on a journey toward Washington, DC that would officially begin The Wounded Walk.
