Nan Rides for Fulbright: RadioACTive checked in with Nan McEntire, 72, who is on a coast-to-coast bicycle trek to raise money for the Utah Chapter of the Fulbright Association.
- Nan is riding with CrossRoads Cycling, an organization that gives participants the option of raising money for non-profit causes of their choice. Her cycling team embarked from Los Angeles on May 11, and plans to finish their long journey on June 29, when they ride into Boston. They'll pass through 15 different states, covering an average of 90 miles per day. To support Nan, click here.
