CHICAGO (CBS) – A group of Cubs fans trying to break the famed “Billy Goat Curse” set out from Mesa, Arizona, in February, on a mission to walk to Wrigley Field, and “Crack the Curse.”

The five friends and their goat “Wrigley” arrived in Chicago on Memorial Day, but first Matt Gregory, Kyle Townsend, Blake Ferrell, Patrick Fisher and Philip Aldrich trekked to the CBS 2 studio.

They’ve walked more than 2,000 miles so far and will wrap up their trip on Tuesday.

Their walk helped raise money for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
