My brother pointed me in the direction of this thread … you can read the following to get an idea of it:

This summer, instead of taking classes or getting a job like other college students typically do, Michal Brichacek has decided to do something radically different. He has decided instead to ride a bicycle from Anchorage, Alaska to Panama City, Panama in order to raise funds for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. He plans on covering a distance of over 12,000 km in 120 days and plans on raising $1 for every kilometer he covers. Currently in the city of Prince George, British Columbia, he has already covered 2,800 km. You can check out daily journal updates and photos on his website at www.CyclingForACause.com. Make a donation, help him reach his goal!

It’s a good cause, so if you feel that you can make a donation, certainly do so!

Have a good week, everyone!
