Three St. Norbert College students will walk 140 miles as part of "For Them," a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project, Aug. 10-16.

Participating Army ROTC cadet Erik Stoltzner, a senior communications major from Arlington Heights, Ill.; cadet Cole Andrekus, a senior economics major from New Munster, Wis.; and Thomas Wolf, a junior computer science major and member Wisconsin Army National Guard from Waupun, Wis.

Wearing their 45-pound rucksacks, the three ROTC comrades will begin their walk at Wilmette Beach in Chicago, ending up in South Haven, Mich., after covering roughly 140 -- miles in five days.

"We want to give back to all the Marines, airmen, sailors and soldiers who have sacrificed so much," Erik Stoltzner says.

The cadets hope to raise $15,000 in pledges for the Wounded Warrior Project, and as of this week had raised more than $6,000.

According to its website, the Wounded Warrior Project anticipates that by 2017, the organization will have served 100,000 warriors, with $96 million in benefit entitlements secured for soldiers and their families.
