Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A ride across North Dakota tomorrow is in the cards for a Pennsylvania man. Ted Danforth is riding from his home state of Pennsylvania all the way to Alaska, all in an effort to raise money for the juvenile arthritis foundation.

Danforth started the trip last Sunday, and hopes to reach Alaska by the weekend. He is riding a BMW GS-Adventure. He is blogging the entire way during the trip, which is a 12,000-14,000 mile ride.

Ted Danforth – Motorcycle Ride to Alaska: “My initial thought was the money trying to raise $25,000, but it is not so much the money. Three-hundred thousand kids have the disease and no one knows about it. I need to get the work out and it is working well.”
