Friends Ross Herr and Brianne Horton are doing an amazing challenge this summer to raise money for young adults with cancer. They bought a van, decked it out and loaded it with kayaks. They left Marquette last week and are now travelling all around the country with a goal to kayak 50,000 vertical feet in just 6 months. With each $1000 they raise a child will get to go to a First Descent camp of their choice! Ross and Brianne are really great. Check out their websites for more info, and to follow them on their journey! KayakingRoss and BrianneHorton
