Bob, and Ben will re-unite in Houghton this summer and are already
making plans to continue their juggling and unicycling activities
Thank you for your support!
Summer of 2008
Unicyclers had their last show together for the summer of 2008 at Houghton County Fair at the indoor
hockey arena on Sunday
August 24th. We have raised over $17,200 for the Gockenbach and
Burkman families this summer! However, we're still taking donations
online. Please continue to keep
Dustin and David in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you!
About the Events
Three young men are juggling and riding unicycles to raise money to
help offset some
of the enormous treatment and travel expenses of the families of David
Gockenbach, 10, of Houghton, and Dustin Burkman, 9, of Marquette. Both
boys have been diagnosed with leukemia and are undergoing treatment
with sometimes-painful side effects. Their families have had to travel
to Green Bay, Ann Arbor and Marshfield for treatment.
On Wednesday, August 13, Jason Cattelino, Bob Evans and Ben Bachran
left Houghton on their unicycles and rode to Marquette, arriving
Sunday, August 17. Along the way, several juggling shows were preformed
in Baraga, L’anse, and Ishpeming to raise funds in communities where
they spent the night.
