Needles, California: Crowds of people welcomed a man dress as Bearsun as he walked through Colorado River desert community on Monday, July 19th, 2021 to New York well raising money for multiple charities.
The ZachNews Team was there as Bearsun woke up from his overnight rest and began to enter Needles, California.
Crowds of people gathered off near Balboa Place near Needles Highway as well as along Needles Highway to meet Bearsun and to show their appreciation for what he is doing.
During this journey, employees at Wagon Wheel Restaurant welcomed him in so he could eat and get repair work done on his costume before heading off on his walk east along Needles Highway.
ZachNews got to interview Bearsun as he was walking, and will have that interview posted as soon as the video is ready.
During the walking, several vehicles stopped pulled up and parked along driveways side streets and dirt lots to say hello, take pictures and give him cold drinks and snacks.
Many of the people, young and old and even families with children, all wanting to show their love, support and appreciation of Bearsun doing all this to help raise money that help people and the environment.
Bearsun continue to meet many nice people along the way I see he headed towards the Needles Bridge in route to Mohave Valley, Arizona and Oatman Arizona.
Jesse Larios started his journey across country to New York City, New York from in the Little Tokyo area of Downtown Los Angeles, California back on Monday, July 5th, 2021, and plans to walk along from California 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.
Despite the extreme heats dress as Bearsun and the long distance walking through high desert thunderstorms, Jesse is determined to make it to the east coast and help raise money for several charities that help people and the environment.
