WHAS11 -- A new study reports that nearly 70 percent of adults older than 60-years-old are overweight or obese.  An Indiana man walking across America is hoping to combat that and get Americans moving. Phillip Woods walks 25 miles a day and entered Louisville, Ky. on Wednesday night.
 
Woods started his journey on April 23 at International Falls, Minn. and plans to end his journey in Key West, Fla.  He hopes his walking inspires people to start exercising.
