Duct Tape Kayak Fundraiser Day A Great Success!

Posted by on August 18, 2012

This past Sunday, the Duct Tape Kayak was on display at the Billington Sea Kayak shop. Dozens of local paddlers stopped by throughout the day to sign the kayak and show their support for Stand Up 2 Cancer. The day brought in over $300.00 in donations which brought us up to $650.00 total and well on our way to reaching our $1000.00 goal!

The highlight of the event for me was listening in as raffle participants attempted to calculate how many feet of duct tape went into building the kayak. There were some close guesses but someone has yet to hit the mark. We plan to extend the raffle until we reach our fundraising goal of $1000.00 at which time we’ll choose the closest guess and award one of the brand new Kayak T-shirts to the winner! Check back soon for the actual amount of duct tape and be ready to be amazed!

As the dust cleared and the day came to a close I took some time to read all of the messages scrawled on the deck by donors. It was inspiring to see the many names of loved ones, the votes of confidence, and the well wishes. Thanks for all of your support!
