“Paddle For a Cause” Fundraiser

As many of us are enjoying end of season snow and hitting the water more as the days grow longer and warmer, a colleague of ours is in the midst of an uncertain medical diagnosis. As many of you know, Marshall Seaman has spent most of the winter in the hospital and nursing home undergoing treatment for Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Though the duration and outcome is unknown, his spirit and resolve has been unrelenting throughout his treatment. Whether you spend time with Marshall at Mt. Baker while he volunteers his time to keep the mountain safe, on the water kayaking with him, or though other activities, now is the time to support him!

Fenn3 PaddleAs a fundraiser for Marshall, we are privileged to donate a Fenn Kayak Paddle of your choice to be raffled off. 100% of the proceeds from the raffle go directly to Marshall to help pay for his mounting medical costs.

Tickets are $10 a piece and are available through the Mt. Baker business office and from DJ. Look for raffle tickets to be sold at upcoming kayaking races in the Bellingham area. Drawing to be held on May 29th, need not be present to win. I will be happy to toss in a couple ‘how to paddle with a wing paddle’ lessons to give some tips to the winner if needed.

I’ll have tickets for sale this Sunday at the Dirty Dan Challenge BBQ, looks like it will be great weather for racing!!!

Thank you for your support!
