Canoe for a Cause – All 2,552 Miles of It

Several months back a gentleman by the name of Camden Sweet contacted me in regards to his quest for raising money towards the research and prevention of Deep Vein Thrombosis/Pulmonary Embolism (DVT/PE) in honor of his mother, Julie, who consequently passed away as a result of this condition. This wasn’t your typical fundraiser though, Camden (24) and a friend would embark an adventure in June paddling 2,552 miles down the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Louisiana coastline.

One of the perks of traveling to my grandmothers 80th birthday party in North Carolina is the opportunity to visit some great vendors and get a first hand look at their operations. Asheville and Greenville are home to some giants in the business like Confluence, Legacy, Astral, ENO and Feel Free USA.
