Woodward, Okla. —
HOW YOU CAN HELP
But besides training for the trip, Yadon said she also has had to make time to try to raise funds to pay for the trip.
"Each individual on the tour has to raise at least $5,000," she said. "Of that, $1,000 is a straight donation to the mission and the other $4,000 goes toward covering the costs for everything we might need for the trip."
Those trip costs include all the food and water she will need on the trip, any lodging costs, as well as helping to pay for maintenance of the bike throughout the trip and fuel costs for a support van that will follow along and offer the bikers a place to take breaks along the journey, she said.
You can support Yadon by making a donation online through the ventureexpeditions.org website.
"They can go to the website and click the link to donate, then there will be a drop down box where they can click on my name as a participate and give online," she said.

"I have the Venture Expeditions website link on my blog. And I also did a TEDx talk at OSU about the trip and posted the video on it on my blog as well," she said.
And if you would like to know how her trip goes this summer, Yadon said she plans to post updates on her blog throughout the expedition.
