Wayne County Man Continues 'Hunger Walk' in Preston County

Posted: Updated:

A Wayne County man's trip across the state raising awareness for local food banks continued Tuesday.

Monday, Tom Knopp, 68, made his trip across Monongalia County in six-and-a half hours.

Knopp said that the 25-mile trek was tough through the hills. His walk continued Tuesday in Preston County. Knopp said the most difficult part of his journey are safely navigating narrow windy roads.

"Having supporters support me just like the Sheriff's Department is giving me protection on a narrow road right here. That is a great thing to have them supporting. Monongalia helped me with the city police, sheriff's department, university police department; they helped me while I was there," Knopp said.

Knopp is walking to raise money for food banks in West Virginia.
