ITD's Executive Director, Mark Protti, will be participating in a fundraising biking trip to benefit the Epilepsy foundation's Sudden Unexpected Death from the Epilepsy Institute (SUDEP). He will be one of the eight core riders of the trip. The riders will do a ceremonial dip of their bicycles' rear wheels in Puget Sound, about 80 miles north of Seattle. Then they will head through the Cascade Mountains into northern Idaho and through Glacier National Park, across Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. They will ferry across Lake Michigan through Michigan, along the north shore of Lake Erie in Ontario before crossing back into this country at Niagara Falls and along the Erie Canal Bike Path. Once across Massachusetts, a ceremony will be held in Boston to dip their front bicycle wheels into the Atlantic ocean. There will be a total of 20 planned cyclists who plan to camp, stop at hostels, churches, and motels along their trip.
