Dudley, Patrik, and I will all be taking to the water this weekend in kayaks for a relaxed 9 mi. paddle that starts and ends at the beautiful Childress Vineyards. I don't think I've kayaked in roughly 15 years, so it will be an adventure! I'm just hoping I don't capsize!
Money raised through the Paddle-A-Thon supports the clean water efforts of Yadkin Riverkeeper to keep the river fishable, swimmable and drinkable. The Paddle-A-Thon is the "biggest and most fun" fundraiser for the Yadkin Riverkeepers. We'd love your support!
#1 Q. "What's in it for me?"
A. Great question! Anyone who donates (any amount) will receive an exciting (electronic) picture of either Patrik or I (maybe both of us!) kayaking (or at least preparing to kayak... or maybe having just finished kayaking)! What more could you want?! If you're local and I know you, I'll probably throw in a hug too.
#2 Q. "Why do you care about the river?"
A. Because rivers are awesome and so are the people and creatures that rely on them!
