ALGOMA, WI (WTAQ) - Five friends say they'll paddle across Lake Michigan to raise funds for the Alliance for the Great Lakes.
Kwin Morris, Jeff Guy, and Andrew Pritchard -- all of Traverse City Michigan -- will join their buddies Joe Lorenz and J. Mueller on a 60-mile trip.
It starts on the Wisconsin shore at Algoma, and it's due to end at Frankfort Michigan. The goal is to complete the trip in 24 hours sometime before Labor Day.
They'll ride stand-up paddle boards on a mission they call "Stand Up for the Great Lakes."
The five hope to raise $10,000 for the alliance, which studies numerous ways to preserve the water quality of the Great Lakes.
