Cyclists on coast-to-coast cancer ride to be welcomed in Lake Lillian
Willmar Minnesota 2208 Trott Ave. SW / P.O. Box 839 56201

A group of 30 cyclists will ride into Lake Lillian on Sunday as they continue their trek from Baltimore to Seattle.

The group -- along with two others riding from Baltimore to Portland and San Francisco -- is part of the nonprofit Baltimore-based organization 4K for Cancer. The organization's goal is to unite communities across the country in the fight against cancer.

Willmar Attorney David Moody has a niece participating in the 63-day ride and is organizing a pot-luck for the riders at 5 p.m. in the old school.

Area cyclists and families are invited to attend with chairs and a dish to share.

The cyclists will depart Lake Lillian Monday and will log the 72 miles to their next desination in Marshall.

The three teams are looking to raise $500,000 by Sept. 1. So far, the 85 riders have received $454,172.77 in donations from 5,262 individual donors.
