Paper Features Team Laughing Dog

Mike Murray and other members of Sandpoint-based Team Laughing Dog (Wayne Pignolet, Jacob Styer, and Al Lemire) were featured in a story in Mike's hometown newspaper, Monticello (Minn.) Times: "The Fourth of July weekend is a popular time to take a road trip. Many Minnesotans head north and find a favorite lake. Mike Murray, a 1981 Monticello High School graduate, went cross-country, and he went a couple of weeks before the holiday weekend. Oh, and he made his trip on a bike. Murray is part of Team Laughing Dog, which took part in the 30th version of Race Across America, leaving Oceanside, Calif., on June 18 and arriving in Annapolis, Md., approximately six days and 10 hours later, finishing 10th out of 30 plus 4-person teams." Team Laughing Dog raised $80,000 for autism. More here. (H/T: Susan Drumheller, via Facebook)
