Support Joybox Express

On August 25, 2017, Mr. B and The Joybox Express will depart Flint, Michigan with the piano bike with the aim of reaching Mackinaw City within 24 hours. The goal of this musical bike ride/swim is to raise funds for YouthQuest, an afterschool and summer program that serves 2,000 students in Flint and Genesee County each year. All donations fund YouthQuest.
