      French man rides bike across US to raise money for rare disease

      Jo Le Bouter stops in Bowling Green during his trip across the U.S.

      A French man has embarked on a trip across the United States, on a bicycle, to raise money for a family member.

      Jo Le Bouter had made it to Bowling Green, Ohio by Wednesday but plans to travel all the way to San Francisco.

      The 62-year-old started his trip in New York City and is biking to raise money for research that will benefit his niece's son.

      She suffers from a rare genetic disorder called Wolfram Syndrome that causes diabetes, blindness and deafness.
