Lucky 13 featured in video by UNC Endeavors

by Megan Fazekas-King (fazekask) last modified Oct 31, 2013 04:44 PM
This summer, ten boy scouts from Chapel Hill are biking across the country to raise money for UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. For every $15,000 raised, UNC Lineberger has agreed to send one of their pediatric oncology patients to spend a week at Victory Junction, a camp for chronically ill children.

UNC Endeavors, an online magazine of research and creative activity at UNC-Chapel Hill, created this video of the Lucky 13 team before they left for their trip on June 10.

Here is an update about Lucky 13's progress to date:

  • Today is the 8th day of their trip and, so far, it has rained every day of their ride.
  • They have raised $25,000 and are only $5,000 from their $30,000 goal!
  • You can follow the pedal-by-pedal action and photos on their Twitter account: @Lucky13BikeTrip.
