I am so excited to be able to participate in the 2016 Paddle-A-Thon. I will be paddling on the Yadkin River to raise funds for the Yadkin Riverkeeper organization. I am getting a late start as others have been raising money for months now. The event was rescheduled allowing me to participate. I was unable to participate last year due to my mother's health. I have actively participated in every Paddle-A-Thon and Tour de Yadkin prior to that. I have missed my time on the river and look forward to this event to help me get back on the river I am so passionate about. The river is threatened by industrial pollution and poor management. Yadkin Riverkeeper promotes, protects, and advocates for the river and the communities that depend on it.
Please help me by donating to this event. No sponsors = no paddling for me . EVERY $ goes toward keeping the Yadkin River more fishable, swimmable and drinkable water- from source to tap. Did you know the Yadkin River serves as the drinking water supply for over 734,000 people?
My goal is to raise $1000 in pledges to represent Wilkes County's love for the Yadkin.
Please make your pledge today and I will paddle on your behalf on June 12th.
Thanks for considering a donation to help me paddle for the Yadkin.
