He's Home(Post Nov.24th)

HE'S HOME! Granite Bay Man Safely Home After Walking and Biking 400 Miles for Charity... Here’s a very quick wrap-up!..

Mike Brown walked from Granite Bay to Sacramento. In South Sacramento, Mike bought a bike, which he then rode to Elk Grove… Lodi… Stockton… Modesto… Turlock… Madera… Fresno and finally to Bakersfield. In Bakersfield… Mike got on a Greyhound Bus to hop over the Grapevine.(CHP said no Bikes on the Grapvine) Then he got off at the first stop (San Fernando) and biked to Pasadena… finally walking to his office.

He left Sacramento for work on Monday, November 19th and arrived at his office on Monday, December 3rd. In all, Mike covered more than 400 miles personally to raise awareness about, and money for, Shriners Hospitals for Children and UC Davis Children's Hospital.

Along the way, Mike met mainly good Samaritans and wonderful cheerleaders. Here and there were a few charlatans… but all in all… people were kind and supportive.

Please join us in welcoming Mike home. The link below allows you watch the video clip of Cornell Barnard’s “Congratulations” interview for KXTV-10, Sacramento. On their Web site there is also a forum for sending Mike your thoughts and well wishes.
