Bicycling enthusiast, Jamie Dressel, 39, of Sun Prairie, dreamed of completing the cross-country trek known as the Southern Tier Bicycle Route.
After almost 20 years of work, Dressel's employer closed it's doors and he was out of a job. But instead of getting down, Dressel decided to map his route and in the process help others.
Dressel reached out to the local March of Dimes chapter to discover how his planned journey could work to bring awareness to the organization’s mission -- and change the future for families across the nation.
Dressel’s 3,092.5 mile trek will begin Sunday, April 17 in St. Augustine, Florida. He will travel through Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona with a final destination of San Diego, California.
