They walked for the brave, the sacrificed, the imprisoned, the Pennsylvania solider.

Thousands joined together Saturday in downtown Lansdale for a common cause: The charity of Pennsylvania veterans.

Upper Gwynedd's Michael "Bishop" Rieg organized and carried out a successful third Lansdale Hometown Hero Walk, which began and ended at Trinity Lutheran Church, on a route that took walkers to Memorial Park and back.

Children, adults, seniors and even veterans donned dark blue and camoflague walk shirts, faces bright, feet not failing them, all in the name of PA old pros.

The walk was kicked off by a keynote address from an Iraq War veteran—retired Army Sgt. John Fleming.

In the past years, money raised at the Lansdale Hometown Hero Walk went to the Wounded Warrior Project. This year, Rieg decided to funnel the money to Pennsylvania veterans' organizations.

Beneficiaries this year include Semper Fi Outdoor Odyssey of Outdoor Odyssey Leadership Academy in Boswell, Somerset County, Mechling-Shakley Veterans Center in Cowansvile, Armstrong County, Operation Homefront, a major nonprofit based in San Antonio, TX, Veterans Multi-Service Center in Philadelphia, and Wounded Warrior Patrol in Carlisle, Cumberland County.

Check out our photos from the event.
