TUCSON, Ariz - It was a tough, 1,615 mile trek, but it wasn't nearly as tough as the ordeal Ryan Cunningham's brother, Craig, underwent as he suffered arrest on the ice just before a Tucson Roadrunners game.
Ryan Cunningham finished his journey this past weekend from British Columbia to Tucson in an effort to raise money for Craig's charity, The All Heart Foundation.
Cunningham biked approximately 125 miles a day for two weeks. His journey took him from British Columbia to Montana, and then Idaho and Utah before reaching Southern Arizona, with numerous flat tires along the way.
Just 21 months ago, younger brother Craig was the Roadrunners captain who's life had to be saved by paramedics. The lower part of his leg had to be amputated, and his hockey career was over. Craig now lives in Tucson and works as a scout for the Arizona Coyotes organization while continuing his recovery.
There is a Go Fund Me account to assist in Ryan's effort to reach his goal of raising $50,000 for the All Heart Foundation.
