BENEFITING: AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY INC
I have lost a young cousin to cancer. My aunt is a lung cancer survivor. My father in law recently treatment and surgery for lung cancer and lymphoma. We have all been touched by cancer.
This is my personal way of trying to raise funds for cancer research. I will be pedaling my bicycle from the shore of Lake Michigan, on Michigans' west coast, to the town of Grayling. I will pedal this 100 mile section only stopping for food and refreshments. Once in Grayling I will get in my kayak and paddle the length of the Ausable River to the shore of Lake Huron along Michigans East coast. This paddle will be 120 miles of river and like the bike ride, I will only stop for drinks and food. I will do the entire adventure in the course of one weekend. When I complete this I will be the only person to ever have done it. The event will be Saturday August 13th and Sunday August 14th, 2011.
