(WICU) How far can you make it on your own two feet? It's a question for some, a challenge for others, and for one student in Edinboro, Pennsylvania, it's a call to action. 

Garth Watson is a senior at Edinboro University, and he is running across America to raise money for the organization "Stand Up To Cancer." 

"I thought if I could use my running abilities, that's the thing I'm best," said Watson.

Garth has been running an average of 40 miles a day and plans on ending in New York City on August 15th.
