• Woman walks cross-country to raise money for nephew

    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A long journey across America landed at Shriner's Hospital for Children in Boston for one Oregon woman with a cause.

    Anna Harrington from Astoria, Oregon always wanted to walk across the country. Harrington said she didn't have a purpose; then, her nephew was diagnosed with scoliosis.

    Harrington decided to dedicate her cross-country walk to raising money for the hospital that treated him.

    During her trip, she has logged 18-hundred miles, crossed 18 states and wore out six pairs of shoes.
