CALERA OKLAHOMA -- A non profit is pedaling across the country for a good cause, and Friday they made a stop in Texoma. They're trying to raise awareness for illiteracy. 

The team from T-4 Global began cycling from the Pacific Ocean in Washington state on June 1st. Along the way they're raising funds to help meet the needs of people who don't read in the hardest to reach parts of the world.

"Everybody gets behind the vision of  love and changing peoples lives, you know, and that's really what we're about, so yea, definite good reception along the way".

 The team rides about 80 miles a day. They hope to reach the coast of the Atlantic in North Carolina sometime around the end of this month.
