Jim Davidson made road-trip history by hitting all 15 Big 10 football stadiums and logging 3,240 miles in just three days.

In his Twitter profile, Davidson calls himself “a professional sports photographer and major geek.”

But the trip meant more for Davidson than just fulfilling a sports photographer’s fantasy. The Columbus, Ohio, resident completed the trip as part of’s “Stadium Photo-athon,” after volunteering to take the place of technical director Chris Treisch, who is suffering from leukemia. The money raised from the trip went to Treisch and his family to help pay for treatment, Davidson wrote in a June 14 blog post.

Davidson slept less than four hours on the trip that spanned 66.5 hours total, according to the video record. He stopped at every Big 10 football stadiums, taking video footage and tweeting pictures at each.
