WHY I PADDLE....
Again this year I am participating in the Annual Dragon Boat Upstate Festival which supports Prisma Health Cancer Institute Upstate.
I humbly come to you once again, asking for your financial support for this worthy cause.
I have lost count of the number of years that I have reached out to you asking for your contribution, but I do know that each year I have had it in my heart to do so because cancer has affected someone I know and love. This year is unfortunately no different. I am dedicating my efforts this year to my dear friend Tyler Osbon who has courageously battled a brain tumor for the past year and continues to give the C word a big middle finger. Keep fighting Ty Mae! And I paddle in memory of my cousin Bruce Clayton who was always kind and smiling; the wittiest and most patient woman I have ever known, Doris Khoe; and the father of our fearless Kraken leader, Ronnie Reeves.
I would be so appreciative if you were to consider donating to my team as I race to try and reach my goal of raising as much money as possible. Your gift will help ensure the continued support of cancer research and survivorship programs right here in the upstate.
Remember, no amount is too small and ALL of your support is appreciated!
With much love and gratitude,
