AURORA, Ill. (AP) -- A 60-year-old Aurora man has set off on a two-thousand-200-mile walk to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
Jim Armbruster left his home yesterday and says he hopes to walk from 16 to 20 miles a day -- six days a week -- on a trip which should last until mid-October. He will sleep each night in a recreational vehicle driven by his friend Vic Robertson of Naperville.
Armbruster is making the trek to raise money for Marklund, a nonprofit group in Geneva and Bloomingdale that cares for the profoundly disabled. Since 1989, Armbruster's son has been in a Marklund long-term care for brain damage suffered in a near-fatal drowning.
