BARCELONA, Spain, June 10 (UPI) -- A Barcelona man says he is selling his body fat for charity.

Oscar Rando is raising money by running and walking the full length of Spain -- 1,864 miles -- and having people donate per gram he loses, thinkSpain reported Sunday.

Sponsors are paying Rando 2.5 euros ($3.12) per gram of fat he loses. So far, he has raised 31,500 euros ($39,393) and has lost 63 pounds, or 28,576 grams.
