ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A cyclist on a 1,000 mile journey to fight childhood cancer is on his way to Albany. 

Josh Fleming began the 'Great Cycle Challenge' in Mississippi. 

He hopes one million people will donate a dollar each to the Children's Cancer Research Fund as he rides.

He was in Alabama Tuesday night, averaging 40 miles a day. 

After a stopover in Albany, he'll head back to Mississippi.   

"The reason why I chose Albany is Sherwood Baptist Church. I thought it might be fun just to go attend a service there. I couldn't think of anywhere else that I would like to go. So, I'll just try to ride there and maybe I'll attend a church service or something," said Fleming.

People can follow Fleming's journey or make a donation at his 'Great Cycle Challenge' page here.

    Organizations, churches, and others across southwest Georgia now have summer feeding programs available. While most students are happy to be out of school for the summer, some go hungry when they don't have two guaranteed meals that they would normally receive from their schools.
