The Big 5 Kayak Challenge team stopped in Juneau on Friday evening during their fifth and final challenge - kayaking the Inside Passage - of their five-challenge endeavor.

The first four challenges included the Isle of Wight, which they completed last September; the length of Thames, completed in February; the English Channel, completed in April; and the Scilly Isles from Lands End, completed in May.

For their last challenge, which they started June 15, the group is kayaking 1,000 in 30 days from Port Hardy on Vancouver Island to Muir Glacier. The team are raising money for the Muscular Help Foundation.
