A man with no arms is cycling 3,000 miles cross country to raise awareness and money for a baby with prosthetic arms.

Hector Picard says he started his journey in Miami last week.

Picard says he plans to reach Spokane, Washington by July 13th to meet the family of baby Jameson Davis.

He says he doesn't know the family, but a member of his foundation does.

He hopes his story will inspire the Davis family and raise awareness to help others understand the financial and emotional burden of prosthetic limbs.

"I just want to show that a stranger is coming across the country to help their family out, and if more people did things like that, I think it'll be a better world," Picard explained.

Picard says he's receiving donations through a website that also tells more information about baby Jameson and his personal story.
