Cyclist hopes to help at-risk kids
Friday, July 20, 2012
In Idaho, it was a bull. Three hundred sheep in Wyoming, the winds of Kansas and the heat of Missouri are all memories Lori Salierno will take with her when she completes her 13-state, 3,000 mile bike across the country to help bring attention to at-risk children.
Salierno left Washington state on June 10 and will finish the Challenge the Cycle Tour ride on Aug. 4 in Acworth, Ga.
Salierno was a motivational speaker when superintendents and school administrators spoke with her about needing something positive for children.
