Two firefighters made it to Nashville Monday in their nearly 170 mile walk from Cleveland. Their walk is an effort to help raise awareness for a first responder post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) bill.

A 303 Project Facebook post stated: “After hundreds of miles and many hours devoted to the #WalkForDustin, we have arrived in Nashville. We’re not quite done yet, but what an incredible journey this has been for all of us. Thank you again for your support. We truly could not have made it here without the outpouring of love and encouragement we’ve felt over these past days.”
