Have you ever heard the adage "He is so giving and helpful he would give you the shirt of his back?" That old saying is true about the Concordia Travel Information Center aka Cloud County Convention & Tourism.
Cyclist Jackie Grabbert had spent the day cycling from Stockton, Kansas to Concordia, Kansas, stopping to visit sites like the largest ball of twine along the way. Jackie, is a member of DetermiNation, a program of the American Cancer Society. As part of the "Pedalling For More Birthdays" team, Jackie hopes to raise $5,000 for the American Cancer Society by cycling her way from Colorado to Wisconsin to attend her high school reunion. (which one is a secret!)
After setting up camp at the Concordia Airport Park, Jackie and her sister Jeri, who acts as her support team, stopped by to get a closer look at the Whole Wall Mural. While chatting with co-director Susie Haver, Jackie noticed her shirt and asked where she could get one. Susie explained that the Kansas Explorer shirt she was wearing was available only to members of the Kansas Explorers Club. Not letting that deter her, she decided to just make a grab for it! After a short scuffle they came to terms and switched shirts.
