A man is running from Los Angeles to New York in 121 days, all to raise awareness for kids in the foster system.

Noah Fredenberg, the director of MeUsWe, will pass through Grand Junction Thursday. He's running 20 miles every day, that will bump up to 35 miles a day once he hits Denver.

He's doing it to raise money for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. So far he's raised more than $1,000.

He hopes the aggressive run will capture people's attention, and bring awareness to the needs of foster kids and at-risk kids in our communities.

"I'm really passionate about people reaching their potential and the foster care community is just kind of underserviced and a lot of kids just fall through the cracks, and for me, that hurts me," Fredenberg said.
