Bicyclist Volunteer Rolls Through Kansas

KSAL StaffJanuary 12, 2015

A New York man traveling across the nation on a bicycle has stopped in Lawrence, Kansas, to volunteer his time and services.

Courtney Bibb started the trip that’s expected to last six months in October, and has planned to stop at 20 cities to volunteer at different charities and organizations. He recently rolled into Lawrence, which was his 11th stop, to help out at Theatre Lawrence.

Bibb says he has several goals for his journey, among them raising awareness about the importance of volunteering and spotlighting lesser-known nonprofits.

Bibb estimates his tour of the nation will cost him around $14,000. He had some extra money that could have gone toward a new apartment but instead decided to pursue his cross-country adventure.
