Santiago Man Walking Continental Divide Trail 3100 Miles For ACS
You think walking from Bemidji to St. Cloud shows dedication. It absolutely does. Lets take a look at Mike Garland, who is now taking on his 4th grueling adventure in four years for the American Cancer Society.
MEET MIKE GARLAND
Mike Garland from Santiago, has proven time and time again that he has a personal war against cancer. Over the past 3 years Mike has canoed, hiked, and bicycled across the United States. He has suffered blood poisoning, cuts, bruises and met some wonderful people; viewed and shared some beautiful countryside, and written a book. This is not the end of his journey.
Mike's family will be representing him at the Central Minnesota Relay For Life event that will be taking place in St. Cloud on Friday, June 7th from 5-11 pm at Apollo High School. You'll be able to encourage his family, and chat with them about Mike's previous adventures and where he is at on his current journey.

He is asking people to pledge per mile and make donations to this cause. The journey will begin next Wednesday, April 17th and if Mike is able to complete the entire trip, it will take him anywhere from 5 1/2 - 6 months to do it. The Continental Divide is very long and goes from New Mexico through Montana.

Mike is great about keeping us all updated during his adventures. As we chatted yesterday morning, I learned that Mike will not have very good if any cell reception along much of his trip. So he will be taking video and pictures and updating his Facebook page, Mike + You = Cure, when he gets reception.
