For years we heard about our neighbor’sContinue reading “Photo Journal: A Close-Up on Captiva Island, Florida, Under a Big Banyan”

Stroke is the #1 cause of long term disability in the U.S. and #3 cause of death. Often it is a silent killer whose signs and symptoms go unnoticed until it’s too late. I know this all too well.

Today I am opening a gallery of photos taken while I followed Len Forkas in the 2012 Race Across America–a 3,000 mile, 12 day bike race. The social media coverage provided by Pawpro was a substantial part of why Forkas and his non-profit, Hopecam.org was able to raise more than $300,000.

Of course the BicycleContinue reading “Pawpro Loves GoPro”
