An Iron Range pastor took off Wednesday on the world's longest kayak race.

Kevin Erickson is the pastor of Cross Hill Community Church in downtown Virginia. He built the kayak that he is racing in the Yukon River Quest. The 444-mile race takes kayakers along the old Gold Rush regions of Canada's Yukon.

Erickson is racing to raise funds for building projects at his church. Donations can be made online.

Anyone interested can follow Erickson's path on the Yukon River Quest website. Erickson's team name is "But If Not."
