Not sure if any of you have seen this, but a friend of the blog sent this to me. Jason Rogers, an Air Force vet turned triathlete from Waycross should complete his coast to coast triathlon sometime Thursday afternoon by heading into Fernandina Beach. He is raising awareness and $$ for Mattie's Mission, a non-profit founded to assist families of childhood cancer victims, named in honor of Mattie Goble. He left Seattle on August 24th and had biked, swam, and ran across the country.

From their Facebook page:
 The Waycross-Ware County Chamber of Commerce is encouraging anyone who would like to be a part of the Welcome Home Celebration today to begin lining Plant Ave. around 4:15 at The Depot. They will continue down Memorial Drive and more celebrating will take place on US 1 South at Crosby Nissan and the other dealerships and end today at the entrance of the Okefenokee Swamp Park!
If you are in Waycross today, or want to support them further, check out the websites for more information on riding with Jason or supporting the group financially.
