Kayaking for Cancer on Saturday, June 26th!
This year I will be participating in the 40th Annual Prouty by organizing a 13.5-mile paddling event down the Connecticut River from Westmoreland, NH to Brattleboro, VT on June 26th. As a breast cancer survivor, participating in The Prouty to help raise awareness and much needed funds for cancer research and patient care is particularly important to me.
Last summer, I kayaked the Connecticut River for the first time and was instantly smitten with its beauty, peacefulness, and power and my time on the river became an important part of my healing process. Whether you, a family member, or a close friend have ever been diagnosed with cancer, you know it's a journey. A challenging journey for all those touched by the diagnosis. For me, this adventure down the Connecticut River symbolizes all of our collective journeys to fight, survive, and find a cure for this horrible disease. My goal for June 26th is to have 50 paddlers make this 13.5 mile journey together and I hope my local friends will consider joining me.
Funds raised help fuel life-saving cancer research and meaningful patient and family support services at Dartmouth and Dartmouth-Hitchcock's Norris Cotton Cancer Center, one of only 51 comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Institute.
Your support of The Prouty will help fund researchers and clinicians who are working on innovative ways to prevent, diagnose, treat and hopefully, one day, cure cancer. You will also help provide important patient and family supportive services that would otherwise not be funded such as support groups, massage, writing, and arts therapy programs.
Here are two ways that you can help make a difference in the fight against cancer:
- Join me and register today to participate in the 40th Annual Prouty. You can participate in your own event or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like details on joining me on my Connecticut River paddling (kayak, canoe or paddleboard!) adventure.
- Make a donation today to help me reach my fundraising goal. Click the donate button to support my efforts in the 2021 Prouty.
During the month of April, the Jack & Dorothy Byrne Foundation is offering a match credit of $250 for every (5) donations made by April 30. These credits can really add up!
- 5 donations = $250 credit
- 10 donations = $500 credit
- 20 donations = $1,000 credit
I am registered for the Prouty Row in 2021.
