1/8/2020 | Missouri State Museum | Jefferson City, MO
Traci Martin, an accomplished Missouri kayaker, who as a solo female twice won the grueling MR340 race from Kansas City to St. Charles, will speak about her world record attempt at paddling all five Great Lakes in a single year. In 2017, Martin became the first individual to circumnavigate three Great Lakes (Michigan, Superior and Huron) in a single year. She has rheumatoid arthritis and used her journey to advocate for those with chronic illnesses. You can also see “Bettina,” her expedition kayak!
