League City man pedals all the way to NYC
Last month, League City resident Jack Compton set out on a month-long journey to ride his specialized bicycle all the way to New York City.
He wanted to get to the site of Ground Zero prior to Sept. 11.
Well, he made it.
Here's what he wrote on his blog on Thursday:
"First off I want to thank all of you who helped get me started by providing equipment and encouragement. I'd also like to thank all the folks who supported me along the way providing lodging, money, food, encouragement and other support. Lastly, but certainly not in the least, I want to thank the New Jersey State Police and the New York Fire Department for getting me safely across those final few miles. Without any one of you at any key moment this entire mission may have not been completed successfully. Thank you all for all of the support!"
He did it to raise funds and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project. Here's the link to the story the Chronicle wrote last month about his endeavor.
