Veteran hiking to raise awareness

CLOVIS, N.M. (KFDA) - A Texas veteran is hiking 2,000 miles to raise awareness.

Chance Huffman is walking from Waco to Portland, Oregon, to raise funds for charities that help veterans. He's been hiking for three weeks so far and just made a pit stop in our area this weekend, passing through Clovis.

He says he's gained a lot of followers, and has already raised $3200. He has served in the army, and traveled to Iraq as a volunteer, helping fighters combating Isis this past year.
