What Did He Learn in 6000 Miles?

James Munsch 

 

James Munsch of Brainerd was preparing to start his freshman year at ND State in just 4 days when instead he took off on a bicycle tour alone to raise money for cancer  research for children  With a noble goal of $5 Million, he is now back in Brainerd with the $500 he raised and priceless memories and experiences.

     The bike trek started in Seattle and ended in Manchester, NH where he ran out of his money and took the bus home.  He made it across 22 states and 6000 miles.

     He slept in a "scout tent" which was a 9 x 12 plastic tarp attached to his bike leaning against a tree and a ground support.  Meals weren't much better.  February was spent in ND helping the homeless and gaining a new perspective on being a responsible adult.  He tells those holding a public office or those in charge of making decisions for how others live to get to know the people - find out how their lives really are.  "Live on the street for a day, go to work with the people you represent".

     Wise words from a young man.

It sounds like James learned much more about real life than perhaps he would have learned at his first semester?
