Good thing you didn't wait to post!!! It couldn't have been a more perfect time to post such an inspirational thread!!
An awesome motivational video!! It is the beginning of a new year "2009", and there's no better time than now to start it off with helping someone out!! Whether it is just simply directly donating to a worthy foundation, or even participating in an event that donates their proceed's to a foundation or foundation's!!
Which leads me to my next discussion, the "Vertical Challenge"!
Sorry Mike B, didn't mean to steal your thread, but I couldn't help myself after watching the video!! It's time to get people hyped up to help out!!!
For those of you who don't know, here's the link and a short break down!!
EddyFlower Vertical Challenge
VERTICAL CHALLENGE SUMMARY:
EddyFlower has partnered with First Descents to raise money for a great cause. What better reason to paddle when every stroke you take raises money for young adults with cancer! First Descents offers young adults with cancer outdoor experiences that will forever change their lives. The 2007 & 2008 EddyFlower Vertical Challenge competitors raised over $34,000 and sent 35 youth to kayak camp.
The goal is for each member on each team to raise as many donations as possible during the event for First Descents. All donations raised go directly to First Descents to provide cancer survivors with a free, week long kayak camp in Colorado. The top 3 individuals who raise the most donations for First Descents win a new Dagger Nomad 8.5, Aquabond Carbon Paddle, and WRSI Helmet.
