Alli Koch is 18, but that’s not stopping her from living her life to the fullest. This summer she’s biking across the U.S. from Canada to Mexico. But she’s not doing it just because she can or it sounded like fun. She’s biking to bring awareness to an important issue: heart disease. I spoke with her about her trip, called Powered by the Heart, her inspiration, and advice for how to start getting into shape. You can learn more about how you can support her trip and follow along with her ride at her website.
