On July 20, Kevin Lily and two friends (Danielle Katz and Brian Coggan) left Bemidji, Minnesota to travel the length of the Mississippi River. They are raising money for local, national and international charities working to alleviate the global water crisis. Their quest was supposed to end on October 10, 2009 in New Orleans, LA. If you've been following this blog, you'll know that late in the trip the fearsome three met with cold, rainy weather that caused delay. Today they are finally getting to their destination.
On the evening of Octoboer 27, they were within striking distance of the end of the Mississippi. The Coast Guard was preventing them from completing the distance because of high river traffic. Not sure whether they made it to the end by kayak or by car, but it doesn't matter. They went the distance in my book. They are amazing. You can extend them your congratulations by making a final donation to their cause.
