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.
