To show support to the Detroit Lions, Joe Paquette, 63, is walking from his home in Munising, Mi (Upper Peninsula) to the Lions practice facility in downstate Allen Park, 425 miles, bringing the message of “Sisu!”
“Sisu” is Finnish for “strength of will, determination, perseverance and acting rationally in the face of adversity.”
Paquette’s family has started a Facebook page so fans can follow his journey to Allen Park.
Today’s update is: “Dad is headed south on highway 15. They are looking for places to park the RV.”
Follow Paquette’s journey on Facebook and stay tuned to Detroitlions.com for more!
