Mike Garland is not your average guy. After knowing of several friends and family members that had been diagnosed with various cancers, Mike decided to dig a little deeper and see what he could do to help. He did his research on the best place to go, to benefit people suffering with cancers, and The American Cancer Society was without a doubt, his organization of choice.

Last year, Mike went on an extensive bike ride across the country, meeting with and speaking with people on his journey...raising awareness for The American Cancer Society, and what the organization stands for.

This year, Mike is making one more trip. This time, he will be walking...and walking...and walking...The Pacific West Crest Trail....all for The Becker Relay For Life and The American Cancer society.
