It’s about 2,150 miles from Camp Pendleton, Calif., to Fort Benning. That’s the distance, give or take a few miles, John Coté walked in just under 100 days; he left Camp Pendleton April 1 and arrived on post July 7.
The reason for his trek? Coté wanted to support the Fisher House Foundation, a charity that provides housing for family members of patients receiving care at military and Veterans Affairs medical centers. Through the walk, he raised $36,000 for the foundation.
