Summer of 2008

The 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.
