Three seniors in high school from Maine are taking to the streets Sunday, July 17th to begin their 150 mile journey from Ellsworth, ME to Old Orchard Beach, ME. The boys are making the ride in the hopes of raising $1,000 for breast cancer research. The trip is self-supported as the boys will be carrying backpacks with sleeping bags, tents, and other essentials and will be staying at campgrounds along the way. They plan on arriving in Old Orchard Beach on the 20th and will be around the next day relaxing and collecting any remaining donations people have on the 21st.
IF YOU’D LIKE TO SEE THE GUYS OFF: They will be leaving from Printing House Square in Ellsworth, ME at around 10AM so be there a little early if you’d like to talk to them before they begin the long push.
To support the guys in their efforts or to make a donation contact Connor Reeves at (207) 249-9060 or e-mail him at MrRedSlippers@aol.com. More information can also be learned by heading over to the Facebook Page they set up.
Good luck boys! It sounds like the trip will be an awesome time for an awesome cause.
