Jacob Beckley is committed to raising awareness and support for childhood cancer. His latest expedition to draw attention to the cause was to row solo across Lake Michigan in an Expedition Rowboat.
To accomplish this he not only build his first boat but learned to row. On Oct 2, 2016 he set off from Michigan and began rowing the 65 miles towards Chicago. Within 24 hours he successfully completed his crossing.
His quest raised $23,000 for research towards treating neuroblastoma, an aggressive and deadly form of childhood cancer.
