Operation Underground Railroad saves lives. They rescue people (many of them children) from slavery and prosecute the thugs that victimize the innocent. For more info, visit www.ourrescue.org
We'll paddle near St. George, Utah at Quail Creek State Park (in Hurricane, UT, just a 2-hour drive north on I-15 from Las Vegas, and about 4 hours south of Salt Lake City) from 12pm until 12am. Some will paddle for 15 minutes, some will go for hours. Every mile, every half mile, every inch counts and will be tracked - let's see if we can get 1200 miles done in 12 hours! Races and fun mini-events throughout the day, along with door prize drawings.
Event cost is free. There is state park day-use parking of $15. All of our volunteers will be able to camp by our office at no charge, tent pack-up by 9am the following morning.
A great app for tracking paddle distance, speed, location, etc. is Paddle Logger. Look for it in your app store. Cost is about $4. Other fitness apps will work, but I like Paddle Logger quite a bit.
