Iowa veteran walks across the nation

SEATTLE, Washington (WHO-13) – Iowa veteran Rick Harrison has accomplished a walk across the United States. Rick began in Naples, Florida with Jeffrey, his brother, on January 23 and managed 3,000 miles to Seattle, WA. He arrived late Sunday afternoon.

The brothers were doing this to honor their father who passed away from dementia. Their dad made a bet with Rick on how long it would take to travel coast to coast on foot.

Jeffrey stopped along the way, but Rick kept going finishing the last few hundred miles by himself.
