Ken Krempin Heads Up Support and Gear for Andy and Chris in August

Ken Krempin, Support and Gear

Starting out on August 1st, Andy and Chris Mull will be cycling from the Purple Parrot Tiki Bar to the Flora-Bama and continue to their goal point in Cleveland, Ohio on the shores of Lake Erie -  over 1,500 miles. If all goes well, they plan to be at Lake Erie by August 25th. That's right - over 1,500 miles in 25 days. Andy and Chris would never be able to do this by themselves. Luckily, they have an amazing guy going with them in a support vehicle. 

Everyone, meet Ken Krempin

Ken has been friends with these guys for years now and will be following them along their route, assisting with any emergencies, setting up base camp at the end of each day and breaking down base camp each morning. Having recovered from prostate cancer himself, Ken brings inspiration and dedication like none other. Ken, thanks for helping these guys get to Lake Erie and back!

Ken has led a pretty impressive life. He gave us this quick recap:
