Man Travels from Indiana to Panama City Beach by Bicycle

Posted: Updated:

Imagine riding your bicycle for 10 days straight, well that's what one Indiana man is doing, and its all in to raise money for a friend that's ill.

Jack Coleman...a recent graduate from Paoli High School in Southern Indiana...has been riding his bike over 600 miles.

He is doing it as a fundraiser for his high school football coach's wife, who has been ill for the past couple years.

Today Jack is on the final leg of his cycling journey riding from South Alabama to Panama City Beach.

News 13 caught up with him on a break from his ride in Ebro

"Cycling was just something that I really loved, and so I wanted to give back to her somehow. She was just like a second mom to all of us on the football team." Coleman said "So doing something that I like to do and raise some money for her, so it kinda worked out."

He originally planned this to be a 14 day bike ride, Jack managed to cut the ride down to 10 days, allowing for extra vacation time for him and his family in Panama City Beach.
