Brennan Besser is on a roll.
The Chicago native and Duke men’s basketball player recently completed a cross-country bike journey that he and his sister Rachel organized to start a conversation and help those affected by intellectual and developmental disabilities, including their sister Jacqueline. During a pit stop in Chicago June 22, the Bessers were honored at a private event hosted by Kristina and Mike McGrath. They’ve raised nearly $350,000 toward their goal of $1 million; to join the movement or make a donation, visit Walkonamerica.org.
