A man from Barcelona says he is selling his body fat for charity.

Oscar Rando is raising money for charity by running and walking the entire length of Spain 1,864 miles and that people will donate per gram of fat that he lost, the news media reported.

Rando said the sponsors are paying 2.5 euros or $3.12 dollars per gram of fat that is lost. So far, he has raised 31,500 euros or $39,393 and lost 63 pounds or 28,576 grams.

Rando said he hopes to raise €75,000 or $ 93,795 at the end of the year for a charity based in El Prat Gats, which helps local disadvantaged people find jobs and support themselves.
