This Teenage Cowboy Will Travel to 48 States on Horseback For Charity

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a young man in Arkansas aims to raise a million dollars for charity by traveling across the country on horseback.  CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Meet Tye Sturgeon and his faithful horse, Edward.

Sturgeon is a 19-year-old cowboy and he's going to ride Edward across all the lower 48 states for the charity "Western Wishes."

The organization is a sort of Make-a-Wish foundation with a country flair and they makes wishes come true for kids facing adversity.

"I like helping people and originally I just thought it'd be a cool thing to do becoming an open range cowboy, that just sounds great to me and it's been a dream of mine," Sturgeon said.
