EVENT: 2012 ETC Paddle-a-Thon

EVENT DATE: Oct 20, 2012

THE STORY:

Dearest Friends and Family,   I'm writing to ask if you might be willing to sponsor me in an upcoming "Paddle-A-Thon" in support of the non-profit organization I've been working for, Environmental Traveling Companions (ETC). ETC provides empowering and educational outdoor adventure trips to underserved populations-- primarily at-risk youth and people with disabilities. Over the past two years working for ETC's Sea Kayaking program, I've been blessed with the opportunity to meet, guide, and learn from so many people spanning a wide range of backgrounds. To paint a clearer picture, here is a list of the populations I've personally led on kayaking trips:
  • adults with developmental disabilities
  • youth on probation
  • people who are deaf
  • people with visual impairments
  • youth recovering from addiction
  • highschool students with Autism and Aspergers
  • youth in remission from cancer
  • parapalegics
A week from this Saturday, on October 20th, I'll be kayaking 9 miles from Sausalito, around Angel Island and back in ETC's annual "Paddle-A-Thon." All the money raised goes directly to to ETC's Scholarship Fund, enabling participants to come on our already low-cost trips. My personal goal is to raise $1,000, and I've already raised $600. If you are able to donate any amount ($10 or more) I will be so grateful for your support!   There are a few different ways to donate. 1. Through Crowdrise: http://www.crowdrise.com/heather4etc

  2. Through ETC's website: http://www.etctrips.org/sponsor

3. By credit card over the phone. Just call the ETC office at (415) 474-7662.

4. By check, payable to Environmental Traveling Companions, mailed to our office: Fort Mason Bldg C, San Francisco, CA 94123   ETC is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. All sponsorships are tax-deductible and you will be formally acknowledged with a thank you letter from ETC after the event.
Thank you so much joining me in support of keeping outdoor adventures accessible to everyone in our communities!   On a side note, the kayaking season and my job will be over at the end of October, and I hope to finally catch up with many of you then!   With Love, Heather
