Memorial Race Fundraiser ($1 Raffle Tickets): SeanOn November 9th 2007, Sean Langevin, 23, a longtime friend of several paddlers, was ambushed and killed near the eastern border of Afghanistan with his Army Unit. One of 9 killed in that attack, Sean left behind a wife, Jessica, who is expecting their 1st daughter, Zoe, in March of 2008. The hope is that we will be able to solicit enough donations to be able to make a sizeable contribution to Sean’s unborn daughter’s Trust Fund established with Wells Fargo. Raffle tickets will be available throughout the weekend for $1 a piece. 100% of the proceeds will be deposited into the memorial fund. So bring some cash cause you could win some pretty cool gear and at the very least you'll be making a huge difference in someone's life.

T-Shirts: Event T-Shirts will be available thanks to Grapevine Apparel and Daniel Brasuell of all weekend for $10. If you would like to buy a t-shirt please register for the race and put down what size you wear. This will help us predict the quanity and sizes to order. 100% of the T-Shirt proceeds will be deposited into the Memorial Fund as well.
