YAKIMA--A man bicycling cross-country makes a stop in Yakima over the weekend.
KNDO caught up with Jerry Christensen before he headed for Enucleate at 6:00 a.m. Sunday.
On May 1 he left Logan, Utah to begin a bike ride of 13,600 miles.
He's riding to promote the possibility of recovering from brain injuries.
Christensen tells KNDO he's not just a rider, but also a survivor.
"When I was 15 I died twice from a severe traumatic brain injury," Christensen said. "The doctors said I would never go to college or work longer than six weeks when I was discharged and I've made a full recovery."
Jerry's going to Seattle, then to San Diego and on to the East Coast.
