71 year young Marine to ride coast to coast in 100 days

Meet Rick Hermelin.

He’s 71 years…young.

He’s also riding from coast to coast in 100 days on an ‘ElliptiGO’ to raise money for the Semper Fi Fund, which supports injured Marines.

A former Marine from California who graduated boot camp at MCRD San Diego, in 1959, Rick has decided to start his journey at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, and in 100 days he will reach MCRD San Diego.  Depot to Depot.  Coast to Coast.  In 100 days.

He left Parris Island this morning, starting his journey.

You can follow his journey on his blog at www.100daysforthecorps.wordpress.com, or his Facebook page at www.facebook.com/100daysforthecorps

Best of luck to Mr. Hermelin.
