100 year old walks 100 miles


Mickey Nelson, a 100-year-old, World War II veteran from Minnesota is celebrating his birthday with an act of kindness that will help feed thousands of people in his community.

He is walking 100 miles through his small city of Clarks Grove in an initiative he has named “Walking to 100.”

He was inspired to walk to raise money for coronavirus relief after reading the story on Tom Moore, another war veteran, who raised more than $37.4 million by walking 100 laps around his garden.

Since beginning his walk in May, Nelson has raised over $42,000
