After spending months looking for jobs in this unwelcoming environment, we discussed productive ways to use our brains, work ethic, and thirst for adventure. That is how we developed the idea to canoe down the
Mississippi River to raise money for breast cancer research.
We have dubbed this venture, “Canoe for the cure”, and are going to write journal entries in our blog so people can follow our progress down the river. We have contacted several local newspapers to help spread awareness for our cause.
While we don’t have personal funds, we do have time. We are contacting businesses and other organizations that support cancer research to contribute to the expenses we will have for travel, food, gear, and other provisions. Any sponsorships, financial donations, or equipment donations for our trip will help us immensely.
