Biking for a cure

By  | 

SHERMAN -- Two men riding across the country for a good cause passed through Sherman this afternoon.

James Mason and Dylan Trakas began their trip in Washington state.

They're trying to raise $50,000 for the Lupus Foundation.

Each of them has a family member suffering from the disease.

So far they've traveled more than 2,000 miles, and hope to reach South Carolina by September 15.

"its one of those dieseases that doesn't get a whole lot of attention and it afflicts more people combined than Systic Fibrosis, MS, Muscular Dystrophy, all of those combined," said biker Dylan Trakas.

If you'd like more information about their ride, or would like to help them out, you can log onto their website.
