He's the man in the pink bra.

Dusty Showers is biking from Tampa to Los Angeles, raising money to fight Breast Cancer.

It's a fight he started after his former mother-in-law was diagnosed in 2005.

The money raised goes to 'The 2nd Basemen'. It's a charity that helps men and women diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

"They're literally my friends. It's not just some enigmatic thing where I say I want to give this money to fight Cancer. These are my friends. And I've got the things that they've given me on my bike, I've got my wristbands. I got a picture of a friend who lost her battle with Breast Cancer when she was 28 and she's along for the ride," says Showers.

Showers stopped in Crawfordville Monday, July 30. He's on his way to Apalachicola next.
