THE STORY:

Risa Williams wrote -

The Head of the Tidal Basin is a paddleboat race on the scenic Tidal Basin in Washington, DC. Teams of two paddlers per boat will take each other on in a fun event organized by Lymeletes to raise funds for treatment of children with Lyme Disease. Race time is Sunday, April 26 at 9:30 am. Teams are eligible for awards and prizes, and all participants will receive a race T-shirt. Registration ends Saturday April 4th, so sign up soon if you are interested!

JOIN THE RACE! There is no entry fee, but this IS a fundraiser, so we ask that each participant raise a minimum of $50 to benefit this great cause. If you would like to participate in this event, you need to do two things: First, register (http://www.eventbrite.com/e/head-of-the-tidal-basin-registration-15808363240) by April 4, 2015 and second click on the "Fundraise for this Campaign" tab on the right side of this page to create your account. To raise money for this cause, share this link (http://www.crowdrise.com/PaddleforLyme) with friends and family and have them donate in your name.

DONATE FOR A TEAM MEMBER!

If you can't race but want to help out, click the big orange button to the right to DONATE to a team member. You can help anyone reach their goal - it all goes to the same place!

This fundraiser is sponsored by Lymeletes. Proceeds will benefit LymeLight Foundation (www.lymelightfoundation.org), which gives grants to eligible children ages 3-25 who have Lyme disease to allow them to receive proper treatment and medication, and also to raise awareness about Lyme disease. This foundation was started by two families who have children diagnosed with Lyme disease; their grants are available to anyone in the United States.

I was diagnosed with Lyme disease last summer and am currently on a 1-4 year journey of recovery. We have put together the group Lymeletes to raise money for LymeLight Foundation because I have personally experienced the high out-of-pocket costs of treatment, and know that many people cannot afford to be treated.

Thank you to our race sponsors!!!
