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.
