(WHDH)  A Massachusetts man is raising a glass for a great cause.

Todd Ruggere is bar crawling his way across the Bay State, hitting every single city and town.

And each time he cracks open a cold one, he's raising money for children's cancer research.

"I'm drinking a Sam Adams in all 351 towns in Massachusetts and I'm doing it for charity," Ruggere said.

His latest stop was in Waltham at the Tempo Bistro. And with each swig, he's raising money for Dana Farber and the Jimmy Fund to help with children's cancer research.

"I've always wanted to raise money for it and never really had a good idea, and I came up with this idea and everyone seems to love it," said Ruggere said.

His mission: one beer a day at a different bar, in a different Massachusetts town.
