Walk to Raleigh, Day 5

Posted: Updated:
It's hump day! We're on day 5 of 9 on our walk to Raleigh. 

Today's destination: Siler City. 

Yesterday the group of Charlotte students walked 22 miles. Today, they hope to go 20.



This Friday morning, part of the group is doing laundry while the others walk. Jessica Contreras is back in Charlotte getting ready for her high school graduation. She's walking across the stage at Bojangles Coliseum at noon. She will be returning to the group tomorrow Saturday.



Tonight at 10, we'll be interviewing 16 year old Rafael Santiago. His dream is to join the Navy as a linguist officer.
