In warmer months, it’s not unusual to see someone on a transcontinental walk or bicycle ride for charity on U.S. 6.

But it’s February, and a man on one of those journeys was turning heads this week as he made his way through the Illinois Valley.

Sterling Cleveland is walking to bring in funds for diabetes research and to raise awareness, and on Wednesday, Frank Bromenschenkel of Mendota noticed him on the west side of Peru and stopped to visit with him and offer encouragement.

Bromenschenkel actually had been following Cleveland’s daily online entries, and said a friend of his from New York had told him about the trek. He said Cleveland has been a stock broker but decided to take this walk recently.
