Our March Charity is Paddling for Pennies!
Please welcome our firefighter brothers and sisters as they paddle their kayaks from Raleigh into New Bern!
The hosts of the event, Allen Williford, Bethany Richardson and Doug Townshed would like to share their story with us:
"We are a group of Fire Fighters trying to give back. We paddle our kayaks from Raleigh to New Bern in 4 days (193 miles) in hopes to raise awareness, funds and respect for fallen fire fighters and wounded veterans.
This is the 4th year that we host this phenomenal act of fortitude and charity.
It’s always a fun day of paddling, kayaking, and visiting with each as we await the arrival of our hero firefighters that paddle over 4 days to raise money for veterans and public servants in need.
We ask only for 1.93 pennies per mile and the help of spreading our story and the ones we paddle for.
This year we will be paddling for the memory of Dane Waggett and the Waggett family.
Please follow our journey by visiting our Facebook Group and Event Page .
