EL PASO - The Battle of I-10 had students from New Mexico and Texas on the run.
Members of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity from Eastern New Mexico University, New Mexico State and UTEP ran a non-stop relay from Portales, New Mexico to El Paso. They say that's more than 300 miles.
We spoke to them to find out why they did it.
"We're raising money for our injured soldiers who come back from Afghanistan and Iraq. It's to help out wounded vets and their families," Robert Wachter said. .
"It's important to show the community we're not just here for ourselves. We're here for the people that are out overseas supporting us, allowing us to be here with no worries," Fabian Castorena.
The money that was raised will be donated to the Fisher House. That's a place where family members of injured veterans can stay so they're close to their loved ones who are being cared for.
"Holidays, birthdays & anniversaries have been celebrated with tears and smiles with people who truly understand what the other person is experiencing."
