WAUKESHA -- A Waukesha man braved blisters and shin splints to raise money for a special cause.

"My goal was to walk from the Mississippi River, from the water there, to Lake Michigan, am going to jump in the water to celebrate," Andy Stenz said.

Stenz spent 11 days walking 232 miles from LaCrosse to Milwaukee to raise money for the group "Walk for Clean Water."

Stenz said he was inspired by the fact that billions of people lack access to clean water, so they are forced to walk long ways to find it.

The money he raised will go towards various clean water projects.
