Len cycles into the "Crossroads of Opportunity" at Effingham, where I-57 intersects with I-70 (that goes all the way to Maryland!). Thank you to Donohue & Stearns for their support at TS37. He dedicates this quiet ride at night to Ava, whose memory he rode for on Day 3 of RAAM. Ava's parent shares:
"Ava was our fun-loving, sweet, smart and spunky 9-year-old girl who lit up every room she entered. Ava loved adventure, in fact, Ava inspired our family saying, “You know it’s going to be fun if you have to sign a waiver.” Read Ava's story, here>>
