EL PASO -- A 66-year-old Vietnam Army Veteran who walked more than 350 miles this summer is being credited with helping to raise more than $90,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project. The money will be used to raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members.

Ron Stephens, a former Illinois House Representative and independent pharmacist walked one mile for every $100 that was raised by Doc's Pharmacy, an independent pharmacy, and Dale's Southlake Pharmacy in Decatur. Those funds were matched by Cardinal Health Foundation, the charitable arm for Cardinal Health, which serves as the pharmaceutical distributor for both.
