BATON ROUGE, La (FOX44) – The weather outside may be frightful, but it’s not enough to scare off one running man.

Milton Miller is currently running across the country to raise money for kids who don’t have any. He hit the road December 19, 2010 from Miami and made his way through Baton Rouge on Wednesday, Feb. 2.

"As much as it is for me, I try to lose weight become an athlete but now I’m trying to help other people," he said in mid stride.

Miller wants to raise money for children in third world countries. He will end his 100 day marathon run in Los Angeles. The total trip is 2700 miles.

“Some people give me money on the road,” he said about his fundraising run.

All that cash will go to needy kids, but he’s not stopping there.

“When I was in New Orleans, I decided any dollar anyone gives me, I’m matching with a dollar of my own.”

It may sound like madness, but Miller says the whole experience has been fun.
