 CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Disabled veteran Scott Burns created a chariable endeavor called 7 Days for the Troops.  He started the event in 2006 in Mississippi with the intention of raising money to help support disabled vets improve their housing situations through the Purple Heart Homes.

     This year he upped the ante and will be sit in the Honor Tower for seven days at Charlotte Motor Speedway during Speed Week.  With the goal of raising $75 - 125,000, he will definitely be right in the middle of all the activities.

     I spoke with him a bit about why he took on this project and what he hopes to accomplish this year and beyond.
