This is from our friends at Monsters at Sea:
The 24 is a 6 man relay paddle from 7 a.m April 4 to 7 a.m April 5th to raise funds to help families arm wrestling with cancer.
Our goals are simple. Encourage people to go because you can and to raise funds to help families arm wrestling with cancer.
LIfe is a very precious thing and when you are healthy you don’t give it much thought. But when cancer decides to say hello and starts to take things from you – the things that make you smile – the water, the running, the bikes, the outside.
Its time cancer took a thumping for once. So for 24 hours we will paddle. Our hope is people will join in and donate per mile (136 miles or 40 miles per paddler) or just donate what is on your heart.
As one person it is difficult to fee like you are making a difference – but when a community gets involved – thats where things really start to happen.
A story for you:
Over goes the hand, banging, searching for that sliver of a button called snooze. Genius design really. By the time you find it — you are beyond rolling back over for just a few more minutes.
The beautiful thing about the water — you don’t need a clock. Somehow dawn takes on a whole new meaning. You want to be up – first in and last out.
Monster and Sea was inspired by a morning on the water when there wasn’t much left. Mentally drained from all that cancer brought into my family. Honestly – didn’t know what to do.
In those moments when you are at the end of yourself – things can become very clear. Give back. Make use of the skills you have to do some good and help. Create a brand that inspires people to celebrate being alive, being healthy and being able to step outside and go where the day takes them.
So how do you start? It’s simple. Go. Don’t waste another second reading or wondering or searching for the snooze. Grab the coffee, put the boards up and go. Go because you can.
We promise – you won’t be disappointed.
The 24. Lets do something big.
