Pedaling for post traumatic stress disorder. That's what two North Dakota war vets are doing.

Dan Olson and Nick Folkedahl are riding bikes across the state to raise money and awareness for soldiers suffering from the disorder.

PTSD affects thousands of military veterans and can lead to depression and suicide.

"It's a shame that people have to serve their country and come back traumatized and they don't get any help," Nick Folkedahl said.

During the soldier's stop in Grand Forks Thursday, Home of Economy donated $2,500 to Pedaling for PTSD.
