The Race Across America - the "World's Toughest Race" - is a 3,000 miles bicycle race that starts in Oceanside, CA and ends in Annapolis, MD.
In 2016, I was very fortunate to work for 3000 Miles to a Cure and document one of their cyclists, Marshall Reeves, as he tried to complete RAAM while raising money for brain cancer research. Marshall completed the race in 12 days, 13 hours, and 52 minutes and raised over $16,000 dollars for brain cancer research.
In 2017, the efforts continued. 3000 Miles to a Cure put together two 4-person teams to accomplish the task of cycling across the country to raise as much money as possible for brain cancer research. I documented #Cruzbike4KC's journey. The group comprised by Maria and Jim Parker, Larry Oslund, and Kevin Gambill finished the race in 6 days, 12 hours, and 26 minutes. More importantly, they raised over $37,000 for the fight against brain cancer.
