      Hike for Tykes begins trek

      In an effort to help a good cause, two men took off bright and early Sunday morning on a five-day hike. Kevin Kukla and his brother left the Al Quaal Recreation Area in Ishpeming for the fourth annual "Hike for Tykes". They headed on a tour of the wilderness, all the way to Bay Cliff Health Camp in Big Bay. In the three years they've been hiking, they've raised more than $10,000 for Bay Cliff, and they say the hike is well worth it. This time they raised an additional $5,000.

      "It's for a good cause. They do awesome stuff--help out kids with disabilities and adults as well, polio survivors--so they need help and we're ready to do it," said Kukla.

      The hikers plan to arrive at Bay Cliff on May 18 at noon for a lunch.
