Greetings from Sandusky, home of Cedar Point Amusement Park. DHR traveled 58 miles yesterday for a total of 943 miles since leaving Boston.
Yesterday was another picture perfect day. We had sunny skies with temperatures in the high 60s. The route was flat and hugged the south shore of Lake Erie.
This was the start of week number three and with seven riders: Mikolaj “Nic” Tropicha-Dolny who started in Boston and five one week riders; Darek Cupial (Poland), Kevin Masukevich (Chicago), Jeff Meckert (Chicago), Dernard Newell (Chicago), and Kasia Wac (Poland).
Honoring extraordinary dads
We met and honored some extraordinary dads again yesterday including Timothy Mitchell, a street sweeper outside the Hilton, who was so touched by the coin and our efforts, he donated $2.
Another dad we recognized along the path was Rich Weiler, a father of two adults kids. We also presented Mike Johnson, a US Army veteran with a Great Dad Coin.
Silly Burns a staff photographer with the Sandusky Register met us at the hotel and collected information and some photos for an upcoming story.
The evening was capped off by a relaxing outdoor dinner at Famous Dave’s BBQ located in a marina adjacent to Cedar Point.
If you have not yet donated, we can use your help to reach our fundraising goal before Father’s Day. Please do so by clicking here.
If you’re looking for a Father’s Day gift, please consider a Great Dad Coin (www.teamdad.com) as well as purchasing a copy of my new book entitled 21st Century Dads: A Father’s Journey To Break The Cycle Of Father Absence, available on Amazon. As a reminder, all the proceeds go to charity.
Also, for anyone who donates $100 or more, I will send you an autographed copy of my book.
We’re off to Toledo today.
