Students Biking Across The Country Make Stop In Owensboro

A few months ago we told you about a group of students from Western Kentucky University, Bike 4 Alz, planning to bike across the country in hopes of raising $175,000 for Alzheimer's research. Well, theyare about 1,000 miles into their journey and made a stop here in Owensboro.
