Beyond the Games: Kayak for Meso
Later this summer, more than 200 paddlers will take to the Hudson River to Kayak for Meso.
Mark Wells started the fundraising event seven years ago, with his daughter, Linda, in mind. At a young age, she was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare cancer.
Last year, for the first time, she joined her father in the river.
And last year alone, paddlers raised more than $23,000 for the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation.
There's still time to get in on the action.
