Boy to ride bike across America for sick children

(WTLV) A 9-year-old from North Carolina is riding his bicycle for a reason.  C.J. Burford says he was called to ride across America for sick children. The fourth grader kicked off his ride September 1 in Oceanside, California, and has since traveled all the way to Saint Augustine, Florida. Burford is riding for the National Children’s Cancer Society, which helps families with young children who have cancer.

“I am doing this because God called me to do this when I was 5-years-old,” said Burford.

He followed through and it is something that he calls riding his bike for Jesus and at the same time he is raising $100,000 through lovefar.org.

“I know people who have had cancer and I want to show them that God Loves them,” said Burford.
