CENTERLINE, Mich. - March 9, 2023 - PRLog -- Jax (Jack Huffman), 36 from Center Line, MI will be taking on a 1,500 mile walking journey across America to raise donations for the Fallen and Wounded Soldier fund.   Jax has challenged himself to complete the walk in 60 days.   Starting from Sarasota, FL on May 13th  & finish at the 6th Annual Salute Our Warriors Event in Rochester Hills, MI on July 13th.

During "JAX walk across 6 states he will be carrying a homing pigeon to be released at the finish line during the Salute Our Warriors Event in Rochester Hills, MI..  The symbolic meaning in the release is that our service brothers and sisters are heard.  This was a means of communication during WW2   Flyers for Jimmy will be providing the doves.

During WW2 Infantrymen would carry pigeons with their wings wrapped in a cloth vest, and then clip the birds to their uniforms the same way they might attach another piece of equipment. Messages could then be loaded into containers on the bird's leg or into a canister on their back before being set free. 90% of messages were received through this method of communication.

JAX has successfully challenged himself in the past with these heroic walks:

In 2019 Jax set out from Newport Beach, CA and walked the 2,841 miles to Tybee Island, GA raising money for St. Jude Children's Hospital. Ocean to Ocean in only 79 days!

Jax walked across Michigan's longest lake to lake trail in 2020, 262 miles (10 marathons) in 6 days for St. Jude!

Jax walked across Michigan again in 2022 to support the DMAN Foundation, walking from Belle Isle to Mackinac Island in only 10 days! (352 miles)

Help Support the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers and inspire our communities to get out and walk more often!  Health is wealth!

Live longer... Live stronger... Live better... WALK!
