‘Pink Snowbirds’ cycling around the United States
The COVID-19 shutdown was a curse and a blessing for 22-year-old Liam Carr and 24-year-old Timothee Leger.
Both lost their jobs and Carr dropped out of school when all his college classes went online. Now the two Canadians are taking to the road to spread awareness and raise money for a cause close to their hearts.
News 25’s Grace Boyles speaks with the Pink Snowbirds during their pit stop in Pass Christian to learn about their journey and the reason they embarked on it.
Two Canadians, two bicycles, a dog, and a 6,000-mile trek sounds like an adventure novel. However, there’s nothing fictional about childhood friends Liam Carr and Timothee Leger teaming up for a cycling expedition across the United States to raise money and awareness for breast cancer, a disease that affected Carr’s family. “The inspiration really came from my mom. She had breast cancer about five years ago.”
