A Purdue University student is taking it upon himself to take advantage of Tuesday’s rivalry game between the Boilermakers and Indiana to raise money for a great cause.

Sunday morning, Purdue junior Aaron Lai left the Delta Chi fraternity house to begin his 100-mile journey from West Lafayette to Bloomington in an attempt to raise $10,000 for Tyler Trent’s cancer research fund.

He’s expecting to arrive at Assembly Hall on Tuesday afternoon before Purdue and Indiana clash on the hardwood in Bloomington. He’ll make two overnight stops along his journey. According to WLFI’s Trevor Peters, Lai has already raised $6,400 of his $10,000 goal.

Lai’s brothers from the Delta Chi house are checking in on him every few hours to supply him with food, water, dry shoes and other possible necessities. Per WLFI, Lai did not know Trent, but he reminded him of his grandfather, who battled lung cancer.

Lai set up a GoFundMe account to help raise money for the cause. Trent, who has a Purdue graduate, team captain and superfan, passed away in January after a long, courageous battle with cancer.

Purdue and Indiana are scheduled to tipoff at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN 2.
