San Bernardino County, California: A man has set off on a mission to raise money for multiple charities by walking from California to New York dress as Bearsun.
On Monday, July 5th, 2021, 33 year old Jesse Larios – better known as ‘Bearsun’ – began his walking journey across country in the Little Tokyo area of Downtown Los Angeles, California.
Jesse has walked through the California communities of Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, Hesperia, Victorville, Barstow, Newberry Springs and Ludlow.
As of Saturday, July 17th, 2021, Jesse was walking along historic Route 66 near Amboy, California and is on his 90 mile stretch towards Needles, California which will be early this upcoming week.
Jesse plans to walk along historic Route 66 leaving California heading towards Chicago, Illinois than heading east towards New York City, New York; all with the goal of raising money for the Autism Society for America, National Breast Cancer Foundation, Active Minds, Villa Esperanza and Environmental Defends through his walking journey.
Jesse has the other walks like this in the past including a walk from San Francisco, California to Los Angeles, California as well as participated in the Los Angeles Marathon in 2019 and 2020.
As in past journeys across the state, people are following Bearsun’s correct journey cross country via social media as well as stopping along the roadway to show their support, taking pictures and giving drinking water.
Despite the extreme heats dress as Bearsun and the long distance walking, Jesse is determined to make it to the east coast and help raise money for several charities that help people and the environment.
