NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – One pancreatic cancer advocate is just a few miles away from finishing his second walk across the country to raise money and awareness for the disease.
As WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reported, BJ Timoner has gone through four pairs of running shoes and has lost 40 pounds over the course of his 3,000-mile excursion.
He crossed the Brooklyn Bridge on Sunday en route to Jones Beach, where his cross-country run is scheduled to end on Tuesday.
As of 1 p.m., he was in Brooklyn and headed east toward Jamaica, Queens, 1010 WINS reported.
“I started in Santa Monica on January 2 of this year,” Timoner, 43, told Miller of his second BJ Walks America cross-country expedition.
