Through a connection I have in Michigan, I was introduced to Mark Mansell, a Lions Club member who is riding his bicycle from Portland, OR to Portland, ME to raise support and awareness for Leader Dogs for the Blind. We thought Mark would benefit from bringing a Verizon Jetpack™ 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi® along on his journey. Mark was kind enough to give us an update on his trip and how technology is keeping him connected with friends and family.
On any given day, I have up to 10 hours and nearly 100 miles of bicycling in my muscles, and I cannot afford for anything to go wrong.
I am in the midst of a 3,500 mile solo trans-America bicycling trip to raise funds and awareness for Leader Dogs for the Blind.
Leader Dogs for the Blind was originally founded by members of the Lions Club, and the two organizations maintain a close relationship. I am a proud member of the La Center Lions Club in La Center, WA, and I am happy to lend my time and efforts to support this organization. It’s been a thrill and a privilege to receive the invaluable support of Lions, Leader Dog clients and staff and others as I’ve made my way across the map. (more…)
