One man's quest becomes a chance for charity
When Jim Ballenthin of Backus originally thought about biking to and around Lake Superior, it was a personal quest. It soon became his opportunity to raise money for local food shelves.
Ballenthin has been dreaming of his bicycling quest for a long time, increasing his riding and improving his physical health for the last three years. It wasn’t until last winter that he began to actually plan his quest.
