Chris Figureida, 30, is a volunteer with the American Heart Association on a bike ride from Fort Kent, Maine to Neah Bay, Wash. -- a 4,200-mile trip.

Somewhere in the middle of that trip lies Roosevelt and Rossman Elementary Schools in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota -- a perfect place to stop, rest and inspire.
