Lucky 13 featured in video by UNC Endeavors

This summer, ten boy scouts from Chapel Hill are biking across the country to raise money for UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. For every $15,000 raised, UNC Lineberger has agreed to send one of their pediatric oncology patients to spend a week at Victory Junction, a camp for chronically ill children.

UNC Endeavors, an online magazine of research and creative activity at UNC-Chapel Hill, created this video of the Lucky 13 team before they left for their trip on June 10.

Here is an update about Lucky 13's progress to date:

  • Today is the 8th day of their trip and, so far, it has rained every day of their ride.
  • They have raised $25,000 and are only $5,000 from their $30,000 goal!
  • You can follow the pedal-by-pedal action and photos on their Twitter account: @Lucky13BikeTrip.
