What's the big deal about a 340-mile round trip in the same day if there's money to raise for CF? The Troopers did just that for its first-ever Oregon fundraising trip. The 4-mile walk in the Rose Quarter started at 10:00am, so that meant leaving home at 6:45am and returning home 11 hours later. The event enjoys great support from Platt Electric and raised over $100,000!
