During July and August 2023, Iain and Lauren Gillott (father and daughter) cycled across the U.S. from Seattle, WA to Annapolis, MD. They were self-supported, carrying all their gear on their bikes, and camping as they went.
They raised money for MD Anderson Cancer Center, an organization that has made a massive difference to their family. Over three years ago, Iain's mother was diagnosed with an aggressive form of chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Thanks to research at MD Anderson, she takes one pill every day and continues to live a normal, active life!
iGR is grateful for any donations to continue the groundbreaking research happening daily at MD Anderson. iGR covered the expenses of the trip as a sponsor, so all money raised has gone to MD Anderson.

Iain has also created a PDF book that includes all of the blogs, plus an introduction, an epilogue and many additional photos. Get the book by clicking the following button. It's a big file with lots of photos, so it takes a while!
