Our Day 8 child, Ashley, was Len and the crew's inspiration all day, yesterday and through the night, to reach the Mississippi River. Time Station 35 is also dedicated to Ashley! This milestone was also a cut off for RAAM riders, and the team couldn't have done it without the help of TS35 sponsor, Earth Networks!
18 year-old Ashley from Memphis Tennessee just graduated high school and got a full ride to Vanderbilt! She writes:
"Hopecam has been an important part in helping me graduate by allowing me to communicate with my school and do research to finish assignments for my classes. I thank my donor for my tablet as it has been a major help through my treatment. I am halfway done with my sessions and I plan to do some internships in the summer for the mayor's office while on treatment. Read Ashley's story, here>>
