Runners take steps to build home for wounded soldier
Placeholder Image
Over 100 runners took to the streets of McMinnville Saturday morning for a good cause – helping a wounded warrior who lost his legs in Afghanistan to build his family home here in Warren County.Retired Army S.Sgt. Charles “Chaz” Allen led the way on board his specially designed hand crank bike. He was accompanied by Sgt. Franz Walkup of Woodbury, also on hand crank bicycle. Walkup was wounded in action in Afghanistan in 2012, a little over a year after Allen stepped on an IED while on patrol in January 2011.
