Wild Bill Holden- Walking the Walk

For those who haven’t heard about Wild Bill Holden’s adventures, it’s quite a story.

Wild Bill has pledged to walk from Arizona to Wrigley Field… all 2100 miles of it. Inspired by the story of former Cub Ron Santo, he’s doing it to raise money to help fund research to find a cure for juvenile diabetes.

He’s made it all the way to Illinois… and he’s raised $75,000 in the process.

Not bad for a 56 year old man with two bum knees.

He’ll be in Morton, IL for an event this Friday. As it is, I’ll be passing through there so I’m planning to stop by to see him.
