Kwik Trip, We’ll Miss You: AKA Goodbye WI, Hello MN!

Today we rode 77 miles from La Crosse, WI over the border to Rochester, MN! We met up with Pastor Taylor at the top of a very large hill, and he wished us well for the rest of our ride. The view of the Mississippi valley was amazing! Our first rest stop was at a Kwik Trip (I4K has become huge fans of KT!!). From there we met many hills and strong winds, until we rolled into beautiful Rochester. Shortly after all of the groups arrived, we were given a tour of the Mayo Clinic by Tammy, Tammy, and Sarah (thanks guys!). From perusing the library and hearing about art therapy to beholding complex medical machinery, we learned SO much about cancer treatments and the extensive work accomplished by the dedicated professionals at Mayo.

A big thanks to Kwik Trip! We loved devouring your bagged milk :)
That Place In Utica was AMAZING. Now we all have sweet duds for I4K Prom. And last but certainly not least, thanks to the Mayo Clinic for showing us around the beautiful new facilities. Seeing the clinic and all the programs for cancer patients really helped reconnect us to the cause!


Thanks for all the continued support,

Illini 4000
