Len conquers four challenging climbs to arrive into Hancock, situated along the Potomac River -- home and the finish are ever closer! We thank Network Building & Consulting for their support of Hopecam at TS49. At this checkpoint, Len is thinking of 9 year-old Elaina from Rohrersville, Maryland. Her parent Amanda writes:
"Elaina is a kind, loving, nine year old young lady who recently (19 April 2017) has been diagnosed with T-Cell Leukemia. Her journey began with a swollen lymph node on her neck as the only sign, followed by a biopsy and then a confirmed diagnosis at Walter Reed National Military Center. Since the diagnosis, she has started chemotherapy, and had several lumbar punctures and bone marrow aspirations. Elaina is in great spirits, given the severity of her current health, and wants to support Len Forkas in the Race Across America (RAAM) by following his progress in the 3,089 mile bike race. Elaina is very new to the Hopecam team but she utilizes the program to stay in contact with her 3rd grade class."
Hancock is a very small town in the narrowest part of Maryland, near the Pennsylvania and West Virginia borders. The town's population is 1,555 people. Hancock was incorporated in 1853 and consists of only 2.70 square miles! The main work here is the manufacturing industry. Toni Braxton, a famous soul singer, was born in Severn, just a short distance from Hancock.
