CLEVELAND -- The weeks following the recovery of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight have been filled with tributes from people all over the world.

A Lakewood man finished a 10-day journey in their honor Tuesday that moved many people to tears.

Alex Sheen arrived at the house where the women were held captive, wiping tears from his eyes as it happened.

He was also greeted by Gina's mom and the two held a very emotional embrace.

He spoke to the crowd a few moments later.

"I promised that I would walk across the state of Ohio -- 240 miles -- because I don't pretend to care," Sheen said.

Sheen quit his job to be able to complete the walk. He is also encouraging everyone to donate to the Cleveland Courage Fund.
