Bearishly ambitious.

A California man runs Forrest Gump for his money and goes up the Golden State on a 400-mile hike from Los Angeles to San Francisco. The mission becomes even more unique because he’s wearing a teddy bear-style suit and has already raised over $ 11,000 for an undetermined charity.

Jesse Larios set off from downtown LA on a whim on April 12 to reach the Golden Gate Bridge in San Fran, reports KNTV. Angelino, 33, created the animated character he named Bearsun about five years ago and decided it was high time for a big trip.

“It was definitely an impulsive decision. I didn’t plan it,” Larios told Reuters about the hike.

The hiker originally planned to hike between 35 and 40 miles a day and make the trip in about a week. However, he realized that the road was longer than originally thought due to some unexpected detours. However, Larios said he was in no rush and enjoyed meeting new people along the way.

The man will stop at supermarkets for a bite to eat or meet with a friend to get a supply of groceries, reports KNTV. When it is finally time to sleep, he snuggles into the suit wherever he ends up at the end of the day.

“It’s warm, it’s padded,” he joked about the outfit.

Highlights so far include a required stop at In-N-Out Burger and friendship with a deputy from the Santa Clarita Sheriff’s Department. Larios said that strangers were also affected by the carefree adventure and explained why he is happy to spread positivity during this time.

“It’s good to see people first of all,” he told KNTV. “Second, it’s good to see you smile, especially after last year, all of these unfortunate events we went through.”

As Bearsun goes on, he is also raising money for a good cause. Larios launched a GoFundMe to promote the hike, with plans to donate the money to a charity or nonprofit whose selections have not yet been announced. As of Friday morning, fans of the friendly looking bear donated over $ 11,000.

“I just want to help the people,” Larios said of the mission.
