Man Walking 645 Miles To Raise Money For Brother's Medical Bills

WGN TV -- Adam Kohr is walking 645 miles in 30 days to raise money for his brother Andy. Andy has mitochondrial myopathy, a cell disease that affects how his body converts food and oxygen into energy. This makes it difficult for Andy's heart and lungs to work.

Adam started his walk on June 15, and, at 30 miles a day, he is making his way to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Adam has created a Go Fund Me page and is hoping to raise awareness and some funds to help with his brother's medical bills. The page has raised $14,000 so far.
