Man Walking Across The Country For Breast-Cancer Awareness

Lynchburg, VA- He's walking across the country, all to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research.

Ryan Connors stopped by our studio on Tuesday to tell us about his journey.

He says he lost his grandmother to cancer in 2002 and ever since has wanted to fundraise.

He left from Virginia Beach on August 20th and hopes to be to California by December.

"I've always wanted to see the country by foot, so I figured I can start a fundraiser up and do it for a cause. I love my Nana and I miss her, and cancer affects everybody in one way or another so I figured that could be a good reason," said Connors.

Connors says he walks about 20 miles a day.

You can keep up with his journey on his Facebook page.
