During this time of year when we give thanks, one man is giving back. Troy Nebeker is helping those who've just learned they have cancer. He understands; his wife was twice diagnosed with the disease. An avid paddleboarder, he put out a call to the entire human-powered craft community, and it responded. His event is called, "The 24." It's a relay paddle where teams spend 24 hours on the water. Nebeker says it's grueling and exhausting, just like cancer. He also says it's incredibly rewarding when they hand out the funds they've raised to grateful recipients. Host Jeff Renner has this inspiring story from The Center for Wooden Boats, a setting that regularly hosts traditional tribal canoe shapings. Master canoe carver Saaduuts Peele shows us the process that's been handed down for generations.
