Thank You for your Support on the 14th
Annual Big River Walk and Paddle!
Saturday June 1st was our 14th Annual Big River Walk and Paddle and what a great day it was! Thank you to
everyone that came out and supported the Cancer Resource Centers of Mendocino
County! Your support keeps our doors open!
We had a beautiful sunny day and
around 90 walkers and paddlers enjoying it. We started the day with some coffee
compliments of Thanksgiving Coffee and a remembrance ceremony by the waters
edge led by Sara O’Donnell. Then we set off on the trail and river and enjoyed
the fresh ocean breeze. We had some great snacks and beverages waiting for the
hungry return. Thank you to all our volunteers that made the day run so
smoothly. The fire department was out on the river and trail, a big thank you
We had some pretty amazing pledge gatherers this year! We were wowed
by their efforts! Our 1st place pledge gatherer was Moneque Wooden
with over $7,000 in pledges winning a brand new Cannondale Trail 7 mountain
bike. In 2nd Place came Kathi Orsi raising over $2,100 and winning a
dinner for two at The Mendo Bistro. Crystal Prairie raised over $1,000 winning
our 3rd place gift card to the Mendocino Café. Thank you to all of
our pledgers and pledge gatherers! Once again the community came together and
showed their support, we are always so grateful!
