Charity runners go from Boston to Austin

By Bob Hallmark

LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- 3 men are making an astounding effort for charities, running from Boston to Austin.

Texan Rusty Tolliver and two friends from Wales, Reese and Scott Jenkins, began running from Boston to raise money for specific charities.

Averaging 35 miles a day over 65 days, they've already covered more than 1700 miles. Their charities include cancer research and veterans of America, and these runners say it is worth every step. The trio is expected to finish their 2000 mile journey a week from Friday in Austin.
