Todd And Colin, Father And Son, Walking Across America To Lose Weight

Posted: Updated:

A father and son are walking across America. Their mission? To lose weight.

Dad Todd, weighs 435 pounds, while his son, Colin, weighs around 330 pounds, KYTX reported. Their goal weights are 275 for Todd and 230 for Colin.

They most recently stopped in Longview, Texas, and hope to walk all the way to San Diego by September.

"It's turned into a walk of inspiration for a lot of people that have followed us along the way," Todd, a former music minister, told KYTX.

Earlier this month, Reverend Corey Booker announced that he was going to walk across America to raise money for awareness of urban violence. Booker's route includes stops in New Jersey, Philadelphia, Chicago and then Los Angeles.

And earlier this year, a man dressed in a Star Wars Storm Trooper costume walked across Australia to raise money for the Starlight Children's Foundation.
