BRANSON, Mo. – Taking it one pedal stroke at a time, a local couple is biking their way across the county to raise money for Camp Barnabas.

On June 23rd, Rick and Darla Stumpff began their journey of over 1600 miles from International Falls, Minnesota to New Orleans. If this journey didn’t sound quite tough enough, Rick has chosen to travel on a unique “High Wheel” bike, also known as a Penny Farthing bicycle.

Joining Steve and Janet via telephone on their morning show on KRZK, Rick shares they are raising money for Camp Barnabas while also riding in memory and in honor of two very special people in his life:


Camp Barnabas is a Christian summer camp dedicated to providing summer camp experiences to people with special needs, physical or intellectual challenges and their siblings from throughout the United States.

Rick and Darla are the owners of Stumpff Funeral Home in Kimberling City and Rick also serves on the Table Rock Community Bank board of directors.

Anyone interested in donating to Camp Barnabas, can make their donation to the High Wheel North to South account set up at the Table Rock Community Bank, at either the Branson West or Kimberling City branches.

You can also learn more and follow their cross country journey on their High Wheel North to South Facebook Page or on their tracking page.
