WEYAUWEGA, Wis. (WFRV) - A local veteran was on a mission Monday to bring increased awareness to help fight breast cancer.
26 year old Daniel Gorchals, of Weyauwega, and a group of friends made a 26 mile walk.
The Air Force veteran was dressed in his desert combat uniform, carrying a 30-pound backpack.
Gorchals made the journey with his mother in mind, who was just diagnosed with breast cancer in June.
Money raised will be donated to Appleton Medical Center foundation's cancer care support fund.
