The aim of the team is to walk 1,200 miles in 14 weeks from the west to the east coast of the US, starting on 2nd June in Los Angeles and finishing on 6th September in New York.
Kensington Palace posted on their official Twitter account:
“The Walk Of America will tell the stories of wounded veterans and their individual journeys from injury to the present day & encourage conversations around veteran mental health. The expedition will also raise funds for veterans both sides of the Atlantic.”
The expedition is funded by corporate sponsorship partners and organisations who want to support the veteran community and will raise vital funds for US and UK veterans.
