Man bikes across country to raise money for Snipes Academy

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A man rode his bike across the country to raise money for Snipes Academy of Arts and Design and Friday he presented the school with a gift from the money he raised.

Christopher Brown rode his bike more than 3,000 miles in nine weeks from San Diego to Wilmington.

He raised around $4,000 to help buy a 3-D printer for the school.

Brown says he is happy to be done with his trip but excited to share his experience with the students and give a gift to the school.

“You know you’ve managed to overcome the obstacles you can achieve your dreams in life so I want to kind of present that to the students as the lesson that I took away from the bicycle ride,” Brown said.

Brown says he appreciates the opportunity to make the donation and hopes the students enjoy their new printer.
