DylanandJim's Wheels of Change



From September 15th, 2014, thru November 2015, we will be navigating 13,000+  miles across the country by bicycle in an effort dedicated to Mental Health Awareness.  We will also volunteer with numerous organizations aiming to improve the quality of struggling peoples’ lives.  Everythig will be publicized on our blog, social media, and YouTube.

We’re choosing to apply the college degrees we earned in May (Jim:Therapeutic Recreation::Dylan: Communications, Sports Journalism and English) in an extraordinary way.

Everyday of our trip we will face obstacles, challenges, and risks. We will be living an outdoor life, preparing meals with a camp stove and sleeping on the ground in a small tent.

In 2011, we bicycled from Vermont to California for mental health awareness with the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation. The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is committed to alleviating the suffering caused by mental illness by awarding grants that will lead to advances and breakthroughs in scientific research.
