Miami, Fla. – Andrew Hayward Smith launched his interactive fundraising journey, Arctic Ride for Dreams, on July 1, 2013. On his journey, Smith will travel from Miami to the Arctic Circle and back, totaling 15,000 miles in 120 days, raising funds for charitable organizations and completing goals along the way in order to bring awareness for various noble causes.
Smith plans to reach Anchorage, AK, on August 8, 2013, via ferry from Canada, and the Arctic Circle on August 15-16, 2013. Smith’s journey ends on November 3, 2013, when he arrives back at Miami Shores Presbyterian Church in Miami, Fla. Smith will complete this entire journey while driving his 865cc, 2007 Triumph Bonneville motorcycle.
Can't believe he's bypassing the Alcan Highway by taking a ferry, but it's still a fairly substantial undertaking. I hope he does well.
