BENEFITING: Environmental Traveling Companions
EVENT DATE: Oct 26, 2013
My name is Sandy Chu and I am a current senior enrolled at Oakland High (go Wildcats!). I've been with ETC as a participant of a 14-day kayaking trip during the Summer of 2012 and a youth intern with them since Fall 2012. Last year, with the help of my lovely partner in crime Charlie Sharp, I was able to reach my fundraising goal of $300. Now with your help, we will be kayaking from Sausalito to Angel Island and back (for a total of 10 miles!) and I would like to raise a personal goal of $500 in support of ETC!
I want to to raise $500 because ETC has provided me an opportunity to draw out my inner potential as a leader with kayaking, river rafting, and skiing. Due to my family's financial circumstances, I did not think that I could kayak around Angel Island or become a guide for river rafting. However, the grants and donations given to ETC has provided me and many other low income youth a scholarship to greatly decrease the amount required to pay for these trips.
All of the information I've learned from ETC, all of the members of the ETC family, all of the great memories that I've made with ETC, I want to give back as much as possible in order to give another person the opportunity to find the leader hidden within.
Please contribute whatever you can (anywhere from $1-$500 :) The range of $10-$20 is much appreciated!) so that Charlie and I can help ETC help others enroll in summer youth expeditions and other outdoor adventures. All donations are tax deductible too, so its like a win-win situation. To make things even better, every dollar donated I raise will be matched by Planet Granite Gym up to $40,000! More bang for your buck!
Thank you for joining Charlie and I to support expeditions to the Great Outdoors!
We will be working our hardest
