THE STORY:

Tanner Thompson wrote -

We are trekking 1,000 around the midwest for the Chicago Fire Foundation!!! 

Anthony Cornilsen and I (Tanner Thompson) have been working for a summer camp for the past four years and have started to get the itch to travel and see the world. So we decided to combine camping and traveling in this 1,000 mile walk. With the perfect balance of spontaneity, determination, and the love of that one Proclaimers song, the Men in Red 1,000 mile walk was born!

We will be starting from Mt. Carroll, IL and going to Columbus, OH, home of our rivals The Columbus Crew. We will then go from Columbus, OH to Toledo, OH then to Bridgeview, IL, the home of the Chicago Fire. Then we leave Bridgeview, IL for Racine, WI and finish the trip by going back to Mt. Carroll, IL. That is 1,001 miles!

We have been fans of the Chicago Fire MLS Team for three years now. We decided that this walk should allow us to give something back to the Chicago Fire, thus we chose to give all the proceeds from this fundraiser to the Chicago Fire Foundation.

The Chicago Fire Foundation reaches out to improve the lives of disadvantaged youth in the Chicagoland areas and surrounding communites by offering out-reach programs and helping improve the health and wellness, education and environment of these communities.
