Lynchburg, VA - Greg Valenzuela is on a mission to raise awareness for cancer, all by riding his bike around the world.
He started riding five months ago in Southern California. In five months he has biked more than six-thousand miles. From here he plans to head South into Mexico, and all the way through South America. Once he reaches Argentina he plans to take a sailboat to Australia to continue his journey.
He hopes his trip will help people realize that a cure for cancer is not out of reach.
"Once people realize how close we are they will realize that it's time to come together, and really make the true difference, because we are almost at the finish line and I don't think people realize that," said Valenzuela.
