Paddle Georgia 2013! My 5th in a row and I will cross the 500 mile mark this June.. What a set of jouneys it has been. Please make a donation to my page to help preserve our most precious life giving water. This is my one and only fundraising venture every year and thanks to everyone for your support in the past and especially for new donors to the effort.
This year, along with 350 other paddlers I am going by kayak 106 miles on Georgia's Lower Flint River from Warwick, GA to Bainbridge, GA.
We shove off on June 15th, 2013 and end 7 hot, wet days later on June 21st. Our shortest paddle day is 11 miles and our longest is 21 miles. It promises to be an epic ride through the coastal plains of Southwest Georgia.
Your donations through this page will go, as they have in the past, to the Area Riverkeeper, the GA River Network, a statewide non-profit, AND to support efforts nationwide for clean, sustainable water. This one is special because I am paddling on a newly repaired shoulder! My pledge is to paddle every inch of the journey, learning and seeing along the way, and be your eyes and ears for renewal and protection of our streams and rivers. The amount of fresh water on our planet is finite, we can protect it not only for ourselves but for the future as well! Give as you can, it WILL make a difference!
Make a pledge for yourself, in the name of a loved one or ones and for whatever reason is important to you! Big to small, every one matters. One dollar a mile or 10 cents a mile please consider something. Every penny helps the fog clear away!
Donating through this website is a simple, fast and totally secure way to support my fundraising efforts. You will receive a receipt when donating.
I appreciate you all and PLEASE pass this along by Twitter, Facebook, your email contacts or any other way to spread the word for me to help in preserving our waters. I want to reach and exceed my goal with your help.
Many thanks for your support -- I am excited to be on my 5th Paddle GA and have seen the difference we've made! I will match the first $100.00 in donations and along with my 50,000 to 100,000 (yes, THOUSAND) paddle strokes it will be a wonderful thing!
In the river spirit and a clearing through the fog, Thank You. Bobby Marie
