(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A Denver man is walking halfway across the change to inspire change.

69-year-old Bob McCormick made his way through St. Joseph Monday as he continues his journey from Denver to Washington D.C.

McCormick said he's walking to draw attention to intergenerational justice or the idea of fairness between generations.

"I don't think we are taking care of the earth in the way that we should for future humans," McCormick said.

McCormick believes each generation is leaving the next generation with more problems than solutions.

"I have three grandchildren. Their well fair their well-being along the well being of future human beings is something that really has become important to me."

McCormick started his journey in August and hopes to be in Washington D.C. by Thanksgiving.

He has raised almost $5,000 along the way.
