Navy veterans stop in El Paso during walk across country

Two Navy veterans are in the Borderland after walking here all the way from Florida.

25-year old Austin Shirley and his friend Bryan Cochran are walking from Florida to California to raise money for wounded wear, a non-profit organization that provides free clothing and services to wounded warriors.

"Chasing the Sun" as their journey is called, began last October in hopes of raising $50,000, so far they have raised more than $25,000.

"We raise the money mainly through social media and just talking to people promoting our chasing the sun there and just talking to people as we travel through the towns that's been the sole basis so far and it's worked out really well."

If you would like to contribute to the cause you can do it through Chasing the Sun's Facebook page.
