      Traveling over 2,000 miles to raise money for wounded veterans

      Two years ago, a 15-year-old boy decided to make an 800 mile solo bike tour from his home in Oscoda, located downstate, all the way up to Copper Harbor.

      This year, Luke Wiltse is at it again, but this time, it's to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project.

      Wiltse said his uncle, who also happens to be a wounded veteran, is the inspiration behind this year's ride.

      Wiltse started in Seattle and has already travelled over 2,000 miles to make his way to the U.P.

      "It's been an absolute great ride. I've met a lot of nice people, and I've gained a lot of support. Everywhere I've gone, in various states, people have shown a lot of support and have donated to my cause," said Luke Wiltse, Patriotic Peddling Tour.

      Wiltse has already raised $10,000, and he is hoping to reach his goal of $20,000 by the end of his trip.
