Several local police officers are on their way to Washington D.C, on foot.
13 Woonsocket officers left Monday morning on the 11th annual COPSwalk; a four-and-a-half-day 450 mile journey to the nation’s capital.
“You don’t get much sleep, you’re eating health bars for four days, its challenging,” said Sgt. Ed Cunanan.
Despite the hardships, Sgt Cunanan and the other officers said they are focused on the mission; raising funds for families of police officers killed in the line of duty.
