French man riding across U.S. to raise funds for research into rare disease
Jo Le Bouter of France camped overnight at Rock Creek State Park on Friday as part of his solo cross-country bicycle trek to raise funds and awareness for a family member suffering from a rare disease. The 62-year-old began his trip in New York City and is headed to San Francisco to raise funds for research into Wolfram Syndrome, a rare genetic disease that faced by his niece's son that causes diabetes, blindness and deafness. Le Bouter is writing a blog about his trip across America. He snapped a few photos of Newton and ate lunch in Colfax. You can find that link here.
