A Big Thank You!!!!

I would like to give a Gi-Normous THANK YOU everyone to everyone who participated in the 2nd Annual Pueblo Paddle-A-Thon to benefit First Descents. You guys ROCK! The event, thanks to you, had a 25% increase in the amount raised over last year. We ended up raising more than $5,000 for FD! Woo Hoo!!!!

I would like to thank, (in no particular order): The Pueblo Paddlers, Dagger Kayaks (Ken Hoeve), Palm/MTI, The Edge Ski, Paddle & Pack, NRS, Kokatat, Shred Ready, Snapdragon, WRSI, Docs Pro Plugs, Raft Masters, The Rev. Roger Patrick Dorcy Cancer Center, The Summit Company, Juls Bayci, The Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce, Dr. Bill McCanless, and my favorite kayaker in the whole world, Eleanor Perry!

All the praise and the glory goes to God for giving us the desire and the tools to step up and make a difference in this way. I thank Him for each and every person who participated, donated gear, volunteered, and wrote the checks that will help First Descents continue their life-changing camps. You guys are the best!

Watch for the Pueblo Paddle-A-Thon 3 coming July 11, 2009 to the Pueblo Whitewater Park.

No....Thank you!


Thanks for doing such a great job organizing this event. I'm glad we could all raise some serious cash. Sorry I didn't get to say good-bye but you were on the river when I left. Will miss you at camp this year.

It was terrific to see you at the Paddle-A-Thon! Thank you so much for making the trip to Pueblo. I hope that you enjoyed yourself. Please consider yourself welcome here any time. The park can be a blast! Also it was very cool to see folks from the camp make it this year. I am hoping to get back to the camp next year if they'll still have me. LOL. Things are just too crazy this year.

Say "Hi" to everyone for me.

The real thanks goes to Bryan for all of his hard work. He is the one that goes above and beyond every year now. Thank you BKP for raising funds for such a great cause. It makes a big difference in the many lives at FD.
