William Galloway says he suffers from a traumatic brain injury after being hit by a drunk driver. He now rides across the U.S. raising awareness for those who also suffer from brain injuries.
Galloway's destination is Bellevue, Washington, at Amen Clinics, a health center that provides psychiatric and brain health care.
KMVT got a chance to speak with Galloway Tuesday morning right before he headed out to brave the snow on his bike.
"I used to weigh 290 pounds," Galloway said. "When I got on the bike, I wasn't in shape to do any kind of distance, but everyday I didn't care if I lived or died, I was aimed to get better help."
He shared with KMVT all the support he has gotten, pointing out a group in Hagerman who gave him a warm place to stay at night.
