Albany - - An Albany school principal is taking an adventurous hike in hopes of raising money for his school.

Dr. Jon Davis was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2001. It had him bound to a wheelchair for several years.

In 2005, he went on a missions trip in Honduras and received prayer from a Spanish minister. When he left the trip, he no longer needed his wheelchair.

He says he's using his testimony to inspire others. On July 20th, Davis will hike the longest trail leading to the top mountain in Colorado Springs. So why is he doing this?   

"For two reasons. One is to raise money for our school for scholarships and technology and the other reason is to show the power of God and how he can change lives," says Dr. John Davis of Byne Memorial Baptist School.

Byne is asking the church and community to make donations based on each mile he hikes. If you'd like to donate to the cause, you can call the school at 229-436-0173.

Pledges are due August 10th.
