Pueblo Paddle-A-Thon 2008


What: Pueblo Paddle-A-Thon
Where: The Pueblo Whitewater Park Pueblo, Colorado
When: Saturday July 12, 2008 10am-3pm
How: Contact Bryan Kelsen (719 406.1331 or [email protected]) to volunteer or to register and get pledge forms.

Boaters who take part in the Pueblo Paddle-A-Thon will be asked to choose to paddle one of three predetermined distances. The distances are 5, 10 or 15 laps of the half-mile Pueblo Whitewater Park. This way participants solicit pledges and they will collect payment before the event eliminating the need to return to collect the pledge. So pick your distance and solicit pledges according to that distance.

The portion of the lap that is the paddling, takes between 7 & 10 minutes to complete. A flatbed trailer will shuttle boaters and boats back to the top of the course for their next lap.

The Pueblo Paddle-A-Thon will once again be an ACA event. Paddlers who are not ACA members will need to pay a one-day membership fee of $10 as well as fill out a waiver to take part. ACA members should remember to bring their cards with them.

Those contributing should make checks payable to: First Descents. To donate via credit card they can go directly to the First Descents website First Descents

Each boater must raise a minimum of $50 to take part in the event. There will be prizes awarded to the top fundraisers (A Dagger Agent 6.4 kayak and other cool schwag.) Each boater will receive a t-shirt at registration when they turn in their money. For every $50 raised a ticket is placed in the bowl for the schwag drawing. The top 3 fundraisers will get to pick their first prize in the order of their finish.

Once again our sponsors have come through BIG TIME! I wasn't even able to get all of the stuff in the photo.

For instance, NRS has donated a Flux Drytop. That one we won't have as the correct size and color desired by the winner of that item will have it shipped directly to their door by NRS! How cool is that?

Also Palm donated dry pants and another drytop in addition to a drysuit, pfds, and gloves. We have earplugs provided by Doc's Proplugs. The helmets are from WRSI and Shred Ready, there is a pfd from Kokatat, spray skirts from Snapdragon and don't forget the Dagger Agent 6.4!!!

I have pledge sheets for those of you who want to have an awesome time and go home with some very cool gear! There will also be free t-shirts for each paddler who raises a minimum of $50. So come and hang out and help a very cool cause First Descents!

You can still contact me via email [email protected] or phone 719 406.1331. I look forward to hearing from you soon and seeing you in Pueblo July 12th!

You bet you can!!! Would you be willing to give rides to non boating fundraisers who want to do laps? Either way, you are welcome with your raft. Let me know where to send you some pledge sheets. You can email me your mailing address [email protected]

The t-shirts are in! They are a sand color with blue printing of the design above. The Reverend Roger Patrick Dorcy Cancer Center at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center is our shirt sponsor. Thanks guys! Everyone who raises a minimum of $50 gets a very cool shirt! See you in a few weeks!
