Well, Saturday, April 7th witnessed the first crossing of the United States by the Prostate Cancer Pony Express.
In just over three weeks, our riders brought the dispatch bag and memorial journal from Daytona, Florida to San Diego, California, stopping at governor’s offices along the way.
So far, our riders have collected two new state prostate cancer awareness proclamations, Louisiana, Arizona, and a third may be in the offing in Sante Fe, New Mexico.
I picked up the dispatch bag on Easter Sunday in San Diego and brought it to Los Angeles yesterday. This afternoon it goes to our rider in San Francisco who will head East.
