The stairs in downtown Stillwater are formidable for even seasoned runners, but that hasn't stopped Thomas Warth from traversing the steep steps multiple times daily. The Marine resident is not stranger to lengthy walks, but is getting in shape for his longest walk yet — a 68 mile, 3-day route from Menomonie, Wis. to St. Paul, Minn.

Warth will be setting out from UW-Stout in Menomonie, book in hand, to raise awareness for the non-profit he founded in 1988, Books for Africa, which has sent more than 28 million books to students of all ages in Africa.
