LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – One man set a goal to cover 720 miles in nine days.

Real estate agent Jim Frey is planning to ride his bicycle from Michigan to New York to raise money for a non-profit organization based in Louisville.

Frey hopes his ride will raise $100,000 for the Women's Global Cancer Alliance's fight against cervical cancer.

Frey said he lost one of his sisters and his father to cancer. He also has a brother who was diagnosed with colon cancer twice and prostate cancer in addition to another sister who is also battling the disease.

He will begin his journey Sept. 26.
