Thank you to Len’s fellow alum from the Ball State College of Architecture class of 1982! We hope your support sends him youthful energy as he races across Indiana. As Len rolls in to Bloomington, he is dedicating his ride to 14 year-old Jordan from Meridian, Mississippi.
Jordan's mom Tonya writes:
"Jordan's journey with Brain cancer started August 28, 2016 at age 13. Since then, Jordan had to miss his last year of middle school with his friends, move out of state and be away from family and friends, and losing his hair as a teen didn't help. All Jordan’s been worried about is missing school and seeing his friends and family.
Hopecam has been a blessing to Jordan -- it has allowed him to be in another state and Skype family, friends, and his school. Hopecam has allowed him to get online like teenagers like to do and complete school work online while receiving cancer treatments. We are now home and Hopecam is still allowing him to be able to do all of those things as he's still not able to attend school. Jordan will only be allowed half days when schools start back as a freshman in high school until he's better. Having Hopecam will help so much and still allow Jordan to get online and do school work.
We want to thank you for the bottom of our hearts for all the support and prayers."
Bloomington, IN was established in 1818 in Monroe County. It first became a settlement in 1816 when President James Monroe selected the land for a Seminary College. It takes its name from the “haven of the blooms”, which the first settlers were so impressed by. Today, the town has a population of around 83,000. Bloomington is known as the “Gateway to Scenic Southern Indiana” and is the seventh largest city in the state. About half of the residents are college students attending the University of Indiana. Bloomington is also a designated tree city, meaning the city works to advertise the importance of urban forestry.
