We talked with Phil Hermel last Monday about his quest to raise money for cancer support in Itasca County.  He aimed high and hoped to raise $15,000.  He knew he would lose some toenails, but he didn't expect to raise  over $34,000 to help families in need. 

Check out his article in Lake Time magazine, and listen to our conversation!
