Refuge Ride

Posted: Friday, Oct 11th, 2013

Katie and Dustin Kelm prepare to leave Florence Wednesday morning to complete their ride in Yachats.

A Minnesota couple ended their 3,500-mile journey across America this week on the Oregon coast after taking an unusual riding approach over the past four months to raise money and awareness to help Syrian refugees.

Dustin and Katie Kelm rolled into Florence on unicycles Tuesday evening, turning heads and tackling inquiries from passersby while riding along Highway 126 — exactly the attention the pair had hoped to receive.
