65-year-old man treks across America, through OU

A man raising awareness in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease ran through campus,  Feb. 25, 2015.

Jack Fussell, age 65, is on his second trek across America.

He started his Forest-Gump-like effort in November 2014 in his home state of Georgia and on Saturday, he ran into Oklahoma City.

During his journey, Fussell travels with a baby carriage filled with supplies, he said. He stays nights at hotels or with friends.

Fussell says his inspiration is his father.
