Imagine going 80 miles per hour in a hot air balloon! Vroooom! Well, one guy's doing it to help fight cancer...and you can be a part of it. Here's how...

It's simple. Austin does Paint the Town Pink to raise money for the Hormel Institute to help fight cancer. It's an awesome community fundraising effort and this year, an Iowa guy, Tim Cloyd, joined in the fun.

According to the ABC 6 News story, Cloyd'll rides hot air balloons around 17,000 feet up, and speeds of about 80 miles per hour...or more!  Now that is an extreme ride! And it's done as part of his non-profit, so he's really all about helping out.

A ride is planned Saturday, and if you want to donate to help fight cancer, and have your loved one's name ride with him, click here.
