AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – A man who was injured in the Aurora theater shooting last summer hopes to complete his cross-country bicycle trek to raise money for other victims.

Stephen Barton began his latest tour called “Ride for Aurora” Saturday morning along with a friend. Last year he had ridden his bike more than 2,700 miles from Virginia before stopping in Colorado where he decided to catch the premier of “The Dark Knight Rises.” He was shot in the neck that night during the rampage that left 12 dead.

Now Barton is raising money and attempting to ride the remaining 1,400 miles to San Francisco in the next three weeks. Every dollar he earns goes to the Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance.
