Time Station 01: Lake Henshaw with Mary

57 miles into the race, Len's first stop is Lake Henshaw. To learn a few interesting facts about Lake Henshaw, we thank the students of Chesapeake High School, who researched all of the RAAM time stations for us. We also thank our TS 01 sponsor, Ernst & Young.

At this time station, Len dedicates his ride to Mary, a 14 year old from Weaverville, California. Mary was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma (a form of bone cancer) in 2015 when she was 12 years old. The cancer was in her arm and spread to her lungs. Mary endured over a year of chemotherapy and radiation at The University of California, San Francisco which is a 10 hour drive from her home. Mary was unable to participate in school and still is unable to attend due to the effects from chemotherapy and her continuing pain. Hopecam has helped Mary stay connected with her family, friends, and school during her treatment and convalescence. They are a wonderful organization. Read more about Mary, here>>
About Lake Henshaw
Lake Henshaw is a reservoir in San Diego County, California. It is roughly 70 miles northeast of San Diego and 100 miles southeast of LA. The lake was built in 1923 to accommodate the rising population and the subsequent water storage. Lake Henshaw has become a popular destination for fishermen looking to catch carp. In the shallow flats of the lake, fishermen can target the fish often by sight casting. Many camping resorts and facilities are located near Lake Henshaw to take advantage of this man-made lake and the economic and recreational opportunities it provides.
