Join us at the finish line

3 days to go until Paddle for Promise
 Cheer Rob on as he paddles into Wilmington!

Dear Friends,

Paddle for Promise 6-1.25.13In three short days I’ll be embarking on a 53 mile canoe trip down the Delaware River.  I’m a little nervous about this epic physical challenge, but as you can see, I have a lot of support! 

I’ve already been encouraged by the response of friends like you.  My goal is to raise $35,000 so that I can employ 40 Wilmington teens this summer as role models for children in their communities.  We’re making progress, but still need your support to reach our goal.  Please consider getting on board with a gift to give our kids a life changing job.  Any amount will help.

I’d like to invite you to join us on Saturday, June 29 at the Wilmington Youth Rowing Association as our crew paddles into Wilmington (I may need your help getting out of the canoe!).  Further details are below.

See you at the finish line!
