On June 21 to 22, 2012, from 7 p.m. to 7 p.m., I will be back at Marsh Creek State Park paddling my kayak for Safe Harbor of Chester County, a local homeless shelter in West Chester, PA! Last year I paddled 80 miles in 21 hours and 30 minutes, and thanks to everyone who donated money, raised about $1600 for Safe Harbor. This event will also be sponsored by the West Chester Church of the Nazarene.
This year my goal is to paddle 100 miles in this 24 hour period while raising even more money for Safe Harbor. But I REALLY need your help!
What can you do?
1) Tell people about the event! Use word-of-mouth and social media. Ask local businesses to hang up a flyer, advertise this event, and get involved. Call the local radio stations and news channels and tell them about what’s happening.
2) Give a donation to Safe Harbor! You can make a donation here. There will be a link available soon where you can mark that your donation is in response to this event and the number of miles I’ve paddled.
3) Grab a canoe, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard (SUP) and join me out on the lake! It doesn’t have to be for all 24 hours – but it would be great to see you out there for even a half hour or an hour. Sunset and sunrise on the first days of summer are great experiences while sitting on the water.
I hope to see you out there and have your help in making this event an awesome success for Safe Harbor of Chester County! Your much needed support can make a huge difference in helping to fight poverty in the local community.
