A woman biking the entirety of Route 66 stopped in Tulsa Sunday.

Danielle Girdano is using the trip to try to raise awareness on child obesity and bullying.

She herself was obese as a child and said children made fun of her for that.

Along the way, Girdano is stopping at police stations, fire stations, and schools to encourage kids to get healthy.

"I was almost 400 pounds," Girdano said. "I smoked two and a half packs of cigarettes a day, and now I'm a world class athlete. I already have one world record under my belt."
