In 2013 our 14th Annual Big River Walk and Paddle was a great day! 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 to them!

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!
