For his 100th birthday, a WWII veteran is walking 100 miles to raise money for coronavirus relief

A World War II veteran from Minnesota is celebrating his 100th birthday with an incredible act of kindness.

Mickey Nelson, 99, is “Walking to 100” completing 100 miles through his small city of Clarks Grove.

Nelson, who turns 100 on June 27, said he was inspired to walk to raise money for coronavirus relief after reading the story on war veteran Tom Moore 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 — all which will go to The Salvation Army’s feeding and emergency programs.
