45 year old Mike Ranta will be in Winnipeg, stopping at the Forks, with a jaunt into the city to visit some of our legions.
Ranta has a brother and friend who served in wars, and he is trying to raise awareness for PTSD.
From downtown Winnipeg, he will head north on the Red to Lake Winnipeg, then go east on the Winnipeg River. His eventual route should take him to his hometown of Atikokan, Ontario by Canada Day, and Cape Breton by about September 30th.
He has been on the water for about 5 weeks, and has lost 60 pounds.
