John Fischer is on the 44-hundred mile trek to raise money for the American Lung Association.
This is Fischer's 15th bike ride. His goal is to raise 250-thousand dollars. Fischer says his involvement is personal. Most of his family was smokers and his son has asthma.
He wants to make sure states, that take money from the tobacco settlement, use it to treat the effects of smoking and prevent it.
“I’ll do everything I can to help the organization, to help people quit. Specially help young people not start.”
