BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
EVENT DATE: Jul 17, 2014
My name is Mackenzie. I am 10 years old and I am doing a sailing regatta called the Dutch Shoe Marathon/ Jr. Leukemia Cup. Me and other sailors will be sailing through shark and pirate infested water for 13 miles in San Diego Bay in California to raise money for the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. Just kidding about the sharks and pirates! :)
One of my good friends has been diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer, so my brother came up with the brilliant idea of a sailing fundraiser. I will be doing this event in a Sabot, a small 8 foot sailboat with one sail and no motor. It takes about 3-4 hours and is very uncomfortable. I will have to survive all day with no way to cook food. If you knew me, you would know that this will be very hard because I am used to having a hot meal pretty much every hour. Plus, if I raise the most money I will get a trophy!
Please sponsor me in this event that will help my friend Jack and other kids like him battle these horrible cancers. It will be very appreciated!
