Last summer we did several articles on Lion Mark Mansell of the LaCenter Lions Club who rode a bicycle some 1500 miles from Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine to help increase awareness for and raise funds for “Leader Dogs” for the Blind. Well, this year his wife, Lion Debbie Mansell, will be on the back of their motorcycle as they will be riding 9,349 miles through all 48 continuous states in 24 days. Their journey to raise awareness of “Leader Dogs for the Blind,” begins in LaCenter Washington on June 15 and ends in Bakersfield, California on July 8.
