Three deaf women, one current student and two alumnae, completed a cross-country bicycle trip on Sunday, August 29. Emelia Beldon, Bridget Berrigan, and Isabelle Troup left Washington State in May, and bicycled 4,270 miles across 11 states to their final destination, Virginia Beach, Virginia. They raised $15,000 for Off the Grid Missions. The Daily Moth interviewed them on their arrival in Virginia Beach. Congratulations on all three on this awesome accomplishment!
