People live out their faith in many different ways....
one man is walking across America... to show his faith and help save lives.
Colin Terrell is the marathon walker. He says, "Decided after I returned from banking I would do something to celebrate surviving a heart attack and 5 bypass surgeries."
So he's planning to walk from North Carolina to California.
and how far has he walked?
Colin. so far I have 2000 left to go. Left North Carolina March 1st... end in Santa Monica September 2nd.
He's doing three things... by walking.... he's trying to raise 50-thousand dollars... to help fight heart disease... he's also staying healthy himself....
and passing on a message... to others..
Colin: " 83 million people have heart disease and it's the leading killer in America you can lessen the effects by regular exercise. They say you live an extra 2 days for every day you exercise."
This is also an exercise in faith.
Colin: "It is part of my Christian faith to do something good for somebody... to pass it on.
Colin walks about 22 miles a day that's almost a marathon every single day... all for heart health.
Colin. " It's a full day we start at 6 in the morning... and crash in bed at 10 at night."
His wife... helps keep him on track and helps map out his direction.
All the planning and walking is worth it... when people respond.
Colin. "A young man said he was moved by God to give me a hundred in an envelope from his church. All I can say is whatever you put into life you'll get back it's a gift to be able to do this journey.
