DENVER -- Serling Cleveland is walking across America to raise dollars for diabetes.
His stroll over the lower 48 is taking him right through the heart of Colorado this month. We caught up with him on Colfax during one of the nicer days in May, as he was preparing to cross the Rocky Mountains, which are no joke on four wheels, he’s doing it on his third pair of hiking boots.
“My grandmother died of diabetes and I just knew I had to do something to raise both awareness and dollars for the cause,” said the Prince Hall Mason.
“I have had so much fun learning about this great nation up close and personal, as Howard Cosell would say.”
You can log onto Cleveland’s website to follow his journey, which sees him log about 25 to 30 miles a day.
Some folks in Glenwood Springs called the newsroom saying Sterling had just left that fine city for Mesa on Sunday.
He hopes to get to the Colorado National Monument In a week or two and then head out to the Bee Hive state as he heads west on his one-man fund raising walk.
If you see Mr. Cleveland walking through our wonderful state, stop for a second or two to say howdy partner, to the man from NYC! Give him a warm Colorado welcome and maybe pledge to fight diabetes.AlertMe
