Yakima Man's Motorcycle Ride Across Country Wraps Up
YAKIMA, Wash. - A man from Yakima riding his motorcycle around the entire United States returns home on Monday.
Dean Shirey's 16,000 mile trip began on May 28th, to raise money for the North Star Lodge Cancer Fund.
His brother, Terry Shirey received care for melanoma at North Star Lodge, but lost his battle in 2012. The cancer care fund helped to support him and his family with basic living expenses.
Well-wishers, survivors, motorcycle enthusiasts and the staff at North Star Lodge are welcoming Shirey at the North Star Lodge Cancer Care Center parking lot, where he'll present his donation on Monday.
