Battle Creek native circumnavigating Lake Michigan on bike
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Battle Creek native who rowed around Lake Michigan alone to raise money for breast cancer research is now preparing for a 1,000 mile bike trip around the lake.
Jenn Gibbons will begin on her trip on Sunday. This time she's raising money for boathouses so breast cancer survivors can discover the therapeutic joys of rowing.
Gibbons raised $125,000 two years ago, but her trip was delayed after she was assaulted.
For the bike ride she'll be joined by 30 supporters.
"I'm fully aware of all the risks that we're taking and fully aware of all the benefits that we will receive from having a great trip and this boat house will provide so much for so many," said Gibbons.
Police still have not made an arrest in Gibbon's case.
On the bike trip she's keeping the names of hotels along the way secret.
