Weber State University Nursing Assistant Professor, Kathleen Cadman, biked 1,842 miles, from Canada to Mexico, to raise money for the Outreach International charity.

Cadman and her father, Bob Cadman, started the ride in Canada on June 7 and planned to finish in Tijuana, Mexico on July 4. Cadman’s mother drives the support vehicle, meeting up with them a few times throughout the day.

“Instead of asking, why ride my bike from Canada to Mexico, I asked why not ride my bike from Canada to Mexico,” Cadman said. “We have seen giant statues of Paul Bunyan, we went through the giant Redwood forest and I got to ride my bike through a middle of a tree.”

Outreach International works to provide communities in developing nations with the tools and resources they need in order to sustain themselves. Cadman and her father’s goal is a penny a mile.

Many of the communities Outreach International has influenced are now functioning on their own.

“It is the only organization I have ran across that does exactly what it says in a model that works,” said Cadman. “They have been around for almost 30 years now and they do phenomenal work.”
