A friend of mine from high school is riding his bike across the country with three of his friends to raise money for earthquake ravaged Haiti. Visit them at Ack 4 All. They’re just getting started, so wish them luck on their adventure!

We are ACK4ALL – a fundraising group created by 4 guys who have spent the better part of the last decade working and living seasonally on Nantucket Island Massachusetts. Working the summers on the Island has provided us with many memorable experiences and the opportunity to meet many great people, including each other. Each year, as the summer days wear off, we are forced to decide what we will do for the winter. In the past we have had many amazing travel, work and volunteer experiences in the “off season”.

However, this winter we decided that we wanted to do something together and for a greater cause. It started out as a challenge over a couple beers in one of our living rooms. Pretty soon all we could talk about was riding our bikes from Folly Beach SC, via Charleston, all the way to San Diego CA, traversing the southern portion of the United States of America. Starting on the Atlantic sand and ending on the Pacific sand. Previously we were not cyclists, but we have always enjoyed riding bikes. Most importantly we are committed to the challenge and the cause we have chosen.

We will be pedaling our bikes to benefit the relief effort in Haiti through the J/P Haitian Relief Organization. The devastation caused by the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti has left the country in serious need. The J/P HRO is on the ground and forefront providing tremendous efforts to the people of Haiti. On the left is a link to our fundraising page where you can find more information about our fundraising efforts. Also, you can use our fundraising page to make a donation to relief efforts in Haiti.

In any case, please keep up to date with this web page because we would like you to be a part of our amazing journey!

Adam, Tim, Tucker & Kevin
