SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- Obesity has become a serious issue for Americans. One man is biking across the Pacific Northwest spreading his message of health.
Fred Schaich is traveling over 1,400 miles through Oregon and Central Washington. He is making the trip on behalf of his non-profit National Health Coalition. In a different town each night he holds a meeting to encourage the locals to start a health support group for those struggling with health issues.
"(It is) for those people who need that crutch that can work together with other people like them and try to in a way work together to optimize all their health," Schaich said.
Tuesday Sschaich is in Sunnyside. Wednesday he will be at the Wellness House in Yakima from 5 to 6pm.
