Race to Alaska for the Homeless

$2,929 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 2 months

After 15 years of living on the streets, Steve Rhoades, once a Marine Veteran, decided to get sober and get his life back together with the help of the Millionair Club located in downtown Seattle. Now he spends his time raising money for charitable groups like the Millionaires Club and also spends his days giving back to the community.

On June 14th, Steve will embark on his biggest charitable cause yet in hopes of becoming the first person to ever 'prone' paddle board from Port Townsend, Washington to Ketchikan, Alaska. Once reaching Ketchikan, Steve won't stop there. He'll be adventuring on his bicycle all the way to Butte, Montana. He may even go as far as Castlerock, Nebraska in hopes of raising money for the Millionair Club as well as raising awareness for our homeless Veterans. Steve needs your help raising money for his cause. By raising 15,000 you're helping Steve gather the necessary equipment to safely attempt this approximately 5,500-milefeat.
