Man drives 1951 tractor 1,000 miles for charity

NEW BUFFALO A local man who moved to Florida a few years ago is back in the area, and he drove the entire way on a 1951 John Deere tractor.

LaPorte county native Darren Hayes is raising money for a friend who has inoperable brain tumors. According to WKVI, that man's daughter died from a brain tumor last year.

Hayes left Florida on August 29th and finishes his trip Thursday in New Buffalo. His goal is to raise $25,000.
