Devin and Sarah joined me on the air this week to report in on their journey across this great country. The 4,200 mile trek is all about raising money for Ocean of Love, a local Ocean County charity focused on directly helping families with kids battling cancer.

Sarah just graduated and Devins graduation is coming up so they had some time this summer to help an important cause.

Two bright, energetic Americans, they're more than a third of the way across the nation and called on a down day where they're actually resting up in a hotel in Pittsburgh, Kansas.

We discussed the hospitality and kindness of strangers and the bathroom and shower breaks needed on a journey like this.

They promised to check in when they hit the Oregon border.

Check out the awesome pics from the journey on Instagram and contribute on the charity website.
