Seventy-two -year-old Hanna Elshoff, a member of the Chatfield Lions Club in Minnesota, has a dream of riding her bike across the United States. While people have doubted her throughout the years, it was PIP Barry Palmer’s theme “Follow Your Dream” that motivated Hanna to get a solar-powered bike and begin her journey.
Watch the video above to learn more about Hanna’s Dream Ride, and follow her on Facebook to stay updated on Hanna’s adventures, including the new Lions and people she’s meeting and where she’s headed next. Stay tuned for an in-depth feature on Hanna in the LION Magazine!
This motto shines through in the latest issue of Lions Quarterly, which features a segment about Lion BJ of the Sheboygan Noon Lions Club in Wisconsin. Lion BJ has a love of sailing, despite being visually impaired. When he called a fellow Lion to help out with a blind sailing event in Sheboygan, nearly 200 Lions from the entire state responded with helping hands.
Watch the video above to learn more about how Lions helped support the blind sailing event, and how Lions helped BJ lead a happier, healthier life.
