                          HONORING DEVIN BECK

  (Mr. CICILLINE asked and was given permission to address the House 
for 1 minute.)
  Mr. CICILLINE. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor Devin Beck, a 
native of Tiverton, in my home State of Rhode Island.
  Devin set a goal to raise $2,000 for Executives Without Borders, a 
nonprofit organization that works to engage business professionals in 
solving humanitarian challenges across the world.
  So on January 11 of this year, Devin left St. Augustine, Florida, 
with the goal of bicycling to San Diego, California, a destination more 
than 2,000 miles away. On February 25, 46 days later, Devin arrived in 
San Diego, completing a journey that spanned 232 hours, 17 minutes, and 
44 seconds on his bike.
  In the end, Devin exceeded his goals and raised $6,000 for Executives 
Without Borders to benefit a program that is helping Haiti to build new 
recycling centers to recover from the devastating hurricane it suffered 
in 2010.
  I congratulate this young man, Devin, as well as his parents, Donald 
and Kathleen, on his truly impressive accomplishments and wish him 
continued success.
