Across the Tri-State, it's common to see farm tractors on the road.
"The way I see it is, so it's hot. These are some of the hottest days we've had. I'm from Florida. We deal with hot quite a bit, somewhat used to it," Hayes said. "However, for three weeks or a month, dealing with a little heat and maybe dodging some rain drops, it's nothing compared to what the children go through. That's what the cause is for, so we're happy to do it."
Hayes says he'll probably arrive at his destination in Michigan around the middle of next week.
