Brothers, friend attempt paddle board trip across Lake Michigan

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Two brothers and a friend will try to go 80-miles across Lake Michigan on a paddle-board.

Twenty-three-year-old Craig Masselink, his 19-year-old brother Trent, and their 21-year-old friend Ginny Melby plan to leave Milwaukee on Sunday.

One will man the board, while the others will tag along in a 24-foot boat with food and supplies.

They expect to take 30 hours to reach the other side of Lake Michigan, to their families’ cottages at Norton Shores Michigan.

The Melby and Masselink families have their cottages right next to each other.

Ginny lives in Grand Rapids, and has spent her summers getting to know the Masselinks at their cottages.

The paddle ride seeks to raise money for Restore International, a group that works to seek justice, restore homes, and otherwise help children in Uganda.
