A Maine man is taking up his cross and exercising his faith - literally.
Tom Helling is walking a 100-pound cross from Maine to Mexico.
He started his journey three months ago, and is currently walking through Virginia.
"I've gone as far as twenty-six to twenty-seven miles and that takes a good twelve hours of walking, it's pretty tough," Helling said. "But I generally like to get eight to ten or fifteen miles."
Tom said he started the one-year trek to battle his drug addiction, and most importantly to remind people of the power of Jesus Christ.
