As teams are getting organized we wanted to let everyone know about 2 resources we have available for you to raise money for First Descents as part of the EddyFlower Vertical Challenge. In the resources you'll find:
Tips and techniques to writing a successful solicitation for donations letter

So set a goal, write a letter and raise some funds for a truly worthy cause! So far the person who raises the most money for First Descents will be receiving a Dagger Nomad Creek boat … size of your choice!

For those of you who have not heard about Vertical Challenge, it’s a simple competition, you and your paddling buddies paddle as many runs as you can endure from May 15 – June 15. At the end of the 30 days, the teams with the most vertical feet in each division are crowned champions. Open to all paddlers, from all states, of all skill levels. Teams started registering last week!
Prizes include: Dagger boat, Kokatat drytops, Aqua Bound Paddles, WRSI helmets, Tech4O watches, KEEN footwear, Voz Sports shaders, Paddling Life schwag and Funnel videos. Special thanks to Alpenglow for picking up a big chunk of the event costs.
