Four Soccer Fans Walk More Than 1,000 Miles To World Cup

The World Cup in Brazil is attracting soccer fans from all over the world, but most of them aren’t getting there by walking more than a thousand miles.

Adam Burns, Dave Bewick, Pete Johnston, and Ben Olson embarked on their epic hike back in March. They started in central Argentina and walked about 1,221 miles to Porto Alegre in southern Brazil in time for the start of the World Cup this week.

Along the way they were charged by bulls, shocked by a farmer’s electric fence, and suffered blisters, sunstroke, and muscle strains. But they also met countless new friends and raised a lot of money for a good cause. The quartet’s long walk brought in more than $18,000 and counting in donations to help build a well in a town in northeast Brazil that has been suffering the worst drought in 50 years.

More information about the campaign is available at JustGiving.com.
